Aulagromyza luteoscutellata in Hale

Aulagromyza luteoscutellata in Hale:

Last autumn I found some mined leaves on a Lonicera species in a garden In Hale. The mines were old and somewhat weathered, but they had more than a hint of Aulagromyza luteoscutellata about them. Earlier this month (July 2012), my daughter, who lives nearby, sent a sample of leaves with new mines and these suggest that Aulagromyza luteoscutellata is present in Hale. The pictures attached show a leaf with an Aulagromyza luteoscutellata mines and a leaf with 2 such mines, one of which crosses and contrasts with a mine of Aulagromyza cornigera.

Regards,
