NORWICH AREA: Citrus leaf-miner

23rd October 2017

Cathy & I had lunch at a garden centre cafe, and afterwards I noticed several lemon trees in large pots. Wandering over to them I soon found a leaf mine, which I recognised from photos as Phyllocnistis citrella. This species has only been recorded in Norfolk on three previous occasions, all in the past few years. It completed my set of four Norfolk Phyllocnistis mines, having seen the other poplar and willow species around Norwich.
