I found these mines in one and the same plant (Arctium lappa).
The Mines at photo 1 and 2 might be caused by Phytomyza lappae? For picture 3 I am insecure. Maybe even another species?
ruderal area near Furth im Wald, Bavaria, Germany

Hi Ingrid, I think all 3 are Phytomyza lappae - the third leaf is much smaller than the others.

Greetings, Eric
