2 Aquilegiae Leaf Miners, ID request.


I've been looking at the leaf mine tracks in our cultivated Aquilegia for a while now. Finally, I got round to photographing them. I think I've got the ID's right, but would like a second opinion as to what they are please. If I'm correct, they are both small flies.Thanks.

Thank you Andy, perhaps Charlie may know what they are. I know he's quite good with leaf mines.
