Two Phytobia species added to the South Wiltshire Diptera list

On 1 February 2024, Robert Homan visited Trowbridge, South Wiltshire VC8 and recorded the larval mines of Phytobia carbonaria (Zetterstedt, 1848) and Phytobia cerasiferae (Kangas, 1955); both species are new to the vice county.

Many thanks to Robert for submitting his observations, along with supporting images.
