Phytobia species is added to the South Devon Diptera list

On 25 January 2024, Andrew Cunningham examined a Hawthorn stem and found the medullary spots of Phytobia carbonaria (Zetterstedt, 1848) at Halberton, South Devon VC3. Andrew’s record is the first for the vice county.

Many thanks to Andrew for contacting the scheme.
