Honeysuckle leaf miner is added to the Lanarkshire Diptera list

On 22 April 2024, Dean Stables found a tenanted leaf mine on Honeysuckle at Kelvin walkway, Glasgow VC77 which produced a puparium on 25 April 2024. The puparium was identified as Aulagromyza cornigera (Griffiths, 1973) which is the first known record of the species in the vice county.

Many thanks to Dean for sending in his record.
