ALSTROEMERIA. Peruvian Lily. [Liliaceae]

Only one species of Alstroemeria is recorded in Britain, the introduced Peruvian Lily (A. aurea).

No miners are recorded on Alstroemeria in Britain.

Elsewhere the non-British polyphagous agromyzids Liriomyza huidobrensis and Liriomyza trifolii are recorded mining Alstroemeria. See also Liriomyza species in Glasshouses and/or Quarantine Interceptions.
