PASSIFLORA. Blue Passionflower. [Passifloraceae]

Only one species of Passiflora is recorded in Britain, the introduced Blue Passionflower (P. caerulea).

No British miners are recorded on Passiflora.

Elsewhere the agromyzids Liriomyza sativae and Liriomyza trifolii are recorded mining Passiflora. See also Liriomyza species in Glasshouses and/or Quarantine Interceptions.

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