Liriomyza species is added to the North Ebudes Diptera list

On 24 November 2023, Stephen Bungard got in touch with the scheme seeking confirmation that a leaf mine on Valeriana officinalis found at North Fearns, Raasay, North Ebudes (VC104) on 27 October 2023 was that of Liriomyza strigata (Meigen, 1830). Stephen’s identification was correct and is the first known record of this species in VC104 – many thanks to Stephen for providing details on this discovery.
