The Agromyzidae, leaf-mining flies, are a large family with approximately 400 species been recorded in the UK. They are a tricky family to identify, with male genitalia examination usually required to ascertain species.
However, some of the larval mines are very distinctive and can immediately give a determination.
The aim of the scheme is to gather records to enable us to gain a much greater understanding of these small flies, in terms of life-style habits, distribution and population trends.
It is hoped that in the future, the scheme will be able to produce a comprehensive atlas for Agromyzidae.
Records, of either adults or larval mines, can be sent to the scheme organiser, Barry Warrington : agromyzidaeRS@gmail.com
