Napomyza

again, another synonym. I've just gone with the one used on DI, but looking at the checklist it seems to be the junior one

Edit: looking more closely it has Napomyza and then Phytomyza sensu stricto as a separate genus, so I'd stick with this one for now

Napomyza

Thanks for the comment. So it is a "Miner" (leaf or stem)- matching leaf mines to agents is something I hope to do sometime.

matching

yes good idea. I thought I might do Flat-footed flies which each breed in different fungi
