Another new vice county record for Phytobia species is reported

On 8 January 2024, Robert Homan examined Blackthorn stems at Curbridge, Oxfordshire VC23 and found the medullary spots of Phytobia cerasiferae (Kangas, 1955). This is the first known record for the vice county.

Many thanks to Robert for sending in his record.
