Dear all,

Does anyone know publications where these species are recorded for Belgium (not I have all Belgian literature at hand (most of them by de Bruyn, Scheirs, Collart, De Clercq etc etc), the Belgian catalogue (Grootaert et al), some European publications (most of Zlobin and Cerny), and books by Spencer.

In none of these publications, these species are mentioned (nor by their old synonym).

I lack for instance Nowakowski 1964 and Nowakowski 1967 (on Cerodontha and A. rufipes group) where there might be some reference to Belgium?

Anyhow: I would be more then happy if any of you know reference to these species (and check them?). Some of them are particularly common in Belgium, but I don't find reference to them.

Agromyza conjuncta Spencer, 1966
Agromyza pseudorufipes Nowakowski, 1964
Aulagromyza populicola (Walker, 1853)
Cerodontha (Butomomyza) mellita Spencer, 1971
Cerodontha (Dizygomyza) crassiseta (Strobl, 1900)
Liriomyza trifolii (Burgess in Comstock, 1880)
Ophiomyia definita Spencer, 1971
Phytobia cambii (Hendel, 1931)

Thank you in advance,

Best regards,

For Liriomyza trifolii I think there is information in the next work:

Minkenberg, O.P.J.M.; Lenteren, J.C. van (1986) The leafminers Liriomyza bryoniae and L. trifolii (Diptera: Agromyzidae), their parasites and host plants: a review.

This is a greenhouse species, so probably you won't find much info about the locations. Probably you have in Belgium something like our 'Plantenziektekundige Dienst' for the fytosanitary inspection. Maybe they want to give you some information about the records. I read on the internet it is known from 1976 in Belgium.

For Phytobia cambii (Hendel, 1931) I think you will need this work:
Donnees biologiques et ecologiques sur Phytobia cambii, la mineuse du cambium des Salicaceae, written by J.L. Gumez and M. Martinez.
Best wishes, Niels-Jan Dek
