Two Phytobia species are added to the Derbyshire Diptera list

On 17 February 2024, Graham Beeley recorded the larval feeding signs of Phytobia carbonaria (Zetterstedt, 1848) and Phytobia cerasiferae (Kangas, 1955) at Pleasley Country Park, Derbyshire VC57. Graham’s records are the first for the vice county.

Many thanks to Graham for getting in touch with the scheme and submitting his records.
