Thread subject: :: Agromyzidae- Agromyza spenceri

Posted by Walther Gritsch on 22-12-2021 13:17

Greetings everyone,

Another cool find from my malaise trap on the small island Amager near Copenhagen. At least I have a hard time seeing this could be anything but Agromyza spenceri. All the same I would like a second opinion as Denmark seems to be outside the range of this species.
The site is at or just below sea level on reclaimed land that has been left pretty much undisturbed for more than sixty years. It's dominated by birch and willow and a plethora of grasses and reed. Apart from the Agromyza sp. in question a number of A. prespana, A. bromi and A. rondensis were taken. And an abundance of Cerodontha spp. All during the second week of June 2021.

Comments will be much appreciated

All the best,
