British Leafminers: http://www.leafmines.co.uk/

A cooperative British project on leaf-miners. Includes lots of photographs of mines and miners accessible by species (of miner or host) or searching. There are also GB distribution maps (Lepidoptera only) and information on biology.

There is also a set of keys to Lepidopteran leaf-mines (based on MOGBI vols 1 & 2).
