Agromyzidae Recording Scheme

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 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.

The Agromyzidae Recording Scheme was introduced in DF Bulletin 83 p5.
