Two Phytobia species are added to the Warwickshire Diptera list

Robert Homan has added two Phytobia species to the Warwickshire VC38 list. A visit to Ilmington on 14 January 2024 resulted in the medullary spots of Phytobia carbonaria (Zetterstedt, 1848) and Phytobia cerasiferae (Kangas, 1955) being found in Hawthorn and Blackthorn stems respectively.

Many thanks to Robert for sending in his records.
