Phytobia species is added to another Welsh vice county list

Bryan Dickinson examined Blackthorn stems at Dyffryn Ardudwy, Merionethshire VC48 on 10 January 2024 and found the typical larval feeding signs of Phytobia cerasiferae (Kangas, 1955). This is the first known record for the vice county.

Many thanks to Bryan for contacting the scheme and sending in his record.
