ABELMOSCHUS. [Malvaceae]

Abelmoschus is not recorded in Britain, except either under glass and/or intercepted at ports of entry in the U.K.

The non-British polyphagous agromyzids Liriomyza huidobrensis, Liriomyza sativae and Liriomyza trifolii are recorded mining Abelmoschus elsewhere. See also Liriomyza species in Glasshouses and/or Quarantine Interceptions.
