Agromyzidae (Leaf-miner Flies) Recording 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.

Submitting records

Through iRecord

The preferred method for submitting records, particularly if you become a frequent submitter, is through the online recording system iRecord.  This user friendly and free to use system has been developed by BRC as a way of easily making records available to recording schemes and local records centres.
