I photographed this leaf mine on a Arctium tomentosum. in Kokkola Finland July 18th 2020.
Is it an Phytomyza mine? And is it possible to identify the species?

Thank you in advance,
Pentti Ketola attached the following image:

Hi Pentti, most probably a P. lappae but this one can be confused with the polyphagous Chromatomyia syngenesiae:
