Phytobia species is added to yet another vice county list

On 20 January 2024, Tony Davis visited East Knighton, Dorset VC9 and found the larval feeding signs of Phytobia cerasiferae (Kangas, 1955) in Blackthorn stems. This represents the first known record for the vice county.

Many thanks to Tony for submitting his record.
