I have agree using some of your own web evidence. But the name really suggest you must be right. Do you have any doubts?
I am here because I went through ALL A.flavifrons posts before posting this http://www.ispotnature.org/node/810845

PS Thanks for the agreement. I have now bred through 6 of the ones I collected - thay are all the same. They are 19 days in pupation. Of course you KNOW that mine are not A.flavifrons but Pegomya betae

PPS - I feel reasonably accomplished now - you may not remember my half-hearted promise to take more interest in Diptera.
I am wading through ALL the leafmines in iSpot - a pretty good database on the face of it.
See this Jeremy? - http://www.ukflymines.co.uk/Flies/Pegomya_betae.php and http://www.bladmineerders.nl/minersf/dipteramin/pegomya/betae/betae.htm - some thanks to your enthusiasm. DO note the NBNG Map!
