It's that time of year and after attending a very useful introductory course with Dave Grundy at Cilgerran earlier this month on leaf mines I have been on the lookout for them. A walk along the Rheidol on the Glanyrafon Estate this week produced these two examples - the first tenanted and the second vacated.

Well done you.ReplyDelete
I have been looking at Hogweed for a couple of weeks but only found flies!!
I have just looked at Arthurs Flora and discovered there is a 'foreign' hogweed on Ynys Edwin so maybe I am checking out the wrong plants.
Did you find any 'hammocks' of clerkella? We have dozens on the apples!
Thanks Ina. No hammocks seen on my L.clerkella. I had better come and inspect your apples!ReplyDelete
