About the scheme

The Agromyzidae Recording Scheme aims to gain a greater understanding of this little-recorded family in terms of life-style habits, population and distribution trends. The scheme aims to collate historic and current data from Local Record Centres, wildlife organisations and individuals (both amateur and professional).

Promoting and generating a greater awareness of this family of flies with naturalists and the general public alike is an important goal. Long-term, the scheme aims to be in a position whereby producing an accurate Agromyzidae atlas is achievable.

A website, which will run in partnership with the recording scheme, is currently under development and in time, will be a useful resource for anyone interested in Agromyzidae.
