Montezuma Cypress Taxodium mucronatum

Description

I was looking up iNat observations in downtown Bastrop on this afternoon and noticed that some "baldcypress sp." had been uploaded previously right along Main Street, posted by @dinogirl11 in June of this year. That perked my interest so my wife and I wandered around a bit and found the same grove of trees (confirmed by the style and paint color of the houses in the background). This grove of 8 or 10 trees appear to have been planted (well above the Colorado River floodplain) and are all about the same age, roughly 30 to 50 years old. As such, I am expecting these to be Montezuma Cypress which is now the most common variety marketed in Texas for planting in upland locations--and has been for decades. Native Bald Cypress occur on the nearby bank of the Colorado River.

These are remarkable leaf miners. I don't understand their biology completely, but it appears to me that they complete their life cycle within just one single leaflet of Texas Kidneywood! Maybe something more complicated is going on here but I can't find anything in the lit or online about such a leaf miner. I'm assuming this might be a Dipteran leaf miner, but I'm not even sure about that. Could be a tiny wasp or ??

Does Siberian Elm have bark like this on young trees\ (4th image)? I was expecting this to be an elm based on the leaves, but the bark is throwing me. This tree was hanging onto the beach beyond the front dunes--maybe not long for this world.
