Is this the leaf mine of Parallelomma paridis?

I came across many mined leaves of Paris quadrifolia in a small wood close to Shrewsbury on 31 July 08. I guess they must be Parallelomma paridis, but having never seen the mines before I am not 100% sure. Can anyone confirm?

I don't think so. P. paridis makes a large blotch mine in the centre of the leaf. The few I have seen do not look like this.
