Another new vice county reported for the two Phytobia species

On 10 January 2024, Robert Homan visited Lower Cam, West Gloucestershire VC34 and recorded the larval feeding signs of two Phytobia species; Phytobia carbonaria (Zetterstedt, 1848) and Phytobia cerasiferae (Kangas, 1955). Both species are new to the vice county.

Many thanks to Robert for submitting his records.
