Welcome to Agromyzidae

The purpose of this site is to disseminate information on all aspects of the taxonomy, biology, and ecology of agromyzid flies (Diptera: Agromyzidae), commonly known as "the leafmining flies." Because all known agromyzids feed inside living plant tissue, special emphasis will be made regarding host-plant records of both pest and non-pest species. Ultimately, we hope to include species-level information for all agromyzid species on host plants, feeding modes and patterns, life cycles, geographic distributions, parasitoids, morphological characters, molecular phylogeography, and taxonomic history. Achieving this goal will require contributions from agromyzid researchers around the world. -- sign up to contribute!
