FLAVERIA. Speedy-weed. [Asteraceae]

Only one species of Flaveria is recorded in Britain, the introduced Speedy-weed (F. bidentis).

No British miners are recorded on Flaveria in Britain.

Elsewhere the agromyzid Liriomyza trifolii is recorded mining Flaveria. See also Liriomyza species in Glasshouses and/or Quarantine Interceptions.

A key to the European miners recorded on Flaveria is provided in Bladmineerders van Europa.
