THUNBERGIA. [Solanaceae]

Thunbergia is not recorded in Britain.

The polyphagous agromyzid Liriomyza huidobrensis has been recorded in quarantine in Britain (Dom Collins (pers. comm.)).

See also Liriomyza species in Glasshouses and/or Quarantine Interceptions.

Elsewhere the polyphagous agromyzid Liriomya bryoniae is recorded on Thunbergia.

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