Agromyza heraclei

Agromyza heraclei Bouché, 1847

Diptera, Agromyzidae


This species has not been found back since its original description from Berlin (Hering, 1957a), until it was reported by Maček (1999a) from Heracleum sphondylium in Slovenia. If the species does exist at all (it is disregarded by the Fauna Europaea, 2007), it should be easy to distinguish the larva from those of other agromyzids on Heracleum by its three-armed cephalic skeleton.


Heracleum sphondylium.


Maček (1999a): Slovenia; Hering (1957a).
