The National Agromyzidae Recording Scheme covers leaf-mining flies, and aims to gain a greater understanding of this little-recorded family in terms of life-style habits, population and distribution trends. The scheme aims to collate historic and current data from Local Record Centres, wildlife organisations and individuals (both amateur and professional).
Promoting and generating a greater awareness of this family of flies with naturalists and the general public alike is an important goal. Long-term, the scheme aims to be in a position whereby producing an accurate Agromyzidae atlas is achievable.
The scheme has its own website, which will run in partnership with the recording scheme. It is currently under development, and in time will be a useful resource for anyone interested in Agromyzidae.
The scheme organiser is Barry Warrington, who is happy to examine specimens of adult flies. Records of leaf-mines (with photos please) can be added to iRecord.
