CHANGES - 2007
 
 

27th December 2007 - Lepidoptera species - Coleotechnites piceaella to Elachista utonella

A further 80 Lepidoptera species pages (alphabetically by genus and species from Coleotechnites piceaella to Elachista utonella) have been updated to include (where known) descriptions of mines, larvae, pupae, time of year and distribution in Great Britain, Ireland and elsewhere, bringing together information from British Leafminers, Bladmineerders en plantengallen van Europa, UKMoths and Fauna Europaea. Links have also been created to the appropriate NBN Gateway grid map (where it exists) for each species.

24th December 2007 - Diptera - Links to NBN Gateway grid map

Links have been created to the appropriate NBN Gateway grid map (where it exists) for every species of Diptera.

15th December 2007 - Lepidoptera species - Coleophora conyzae to Coleophora wockeella

A further 59 Lepidoptera species pages (alphabetically by genus and species from Coleophora conyzae to Coleophora wockeella) have been updated to include (where known) descriptions of mines, larvae, pupae, time of year and distribution in Great Britain, Ireland and elsewhere, bringing together information from British Leafminers, Bladmineerders en plantengallen van Europa, UKMoths and Fauna Europaea. Links have also been created to the appropriate NBN Gateway grid map (where it exists) for each of the above 59 species of Lepidoptera.

30th November 2007 - Lepidoptera species - Acrocercops brongniardella to Coleophora conspicuella

Some 80 Lepidoptera species pages (alphabetically by genus and species from Acrocercops brongniardella to Coleophora conspicuella) have been updated to include (where known) descriptions of mines, larvae, pupae, time of year and distribution in Great Britain, Ireland and elsewhere, bringing together information from British Leafminers, Bladmineerders en plantengallen van Europa, UKMoths and Fauna Europaea. Links have also been created to the appropriate NBN Gateway grid map (where it exists) for each of the above 80 species of Lepidoptera.

20th November 2007 - Coleoptera species

Species pages have been created for all mining Coleoptera. These species pages include a list of the known host genera and species recorded in Britain and elsewhere plus links to British Leafminers, Bladmineerders en plantengallen van Europa and Fauna Europaea and links to search for species using Google and Google Scholar. Links from the host plant keys for the above Coleoptera species have also been created.

13th November 2007 - Hymenoptera species

Species pages have been created for all mining Hymenoptera. These species pages include a list of the known host genera and species recorded in Britain and elsewhere plus links to British Leafminers, Bladmineerders en plantengallen van Europa and Fauna Europaea and links to search for species using Google and Google Scholar. Links from the host plant keys for the above Hymenoptera species have also been created.

12th November 2007 - Lepidoptera species - remaining species

Species pages have been created for all remaining mining Lepidoptera. These species pages include a list of the known host genera and species recorded in Britain and elsewhere plus links to British Leafminers, Bladmineerders en plantengallen van Europa, UKMoths and Fauna Europaea and links to search for species using Google and Google Scholar. Links from the host plant keys for the above Lepidoptera species have also been created.

30th October 2007 - Lepidoptera species - Elachista adscitella to Elachista utonella

Species pages have been created for all mining Lepidoptera alphabetically by genus from Elachista adscitella to Elachista utonella. These species pages include a list of the known host genera and species recorded in Britain and elsewhere plus links to British Leafminers, Bladmineerders en plantengallen van Europa, UKMoths and Fauna Europaea and links to search for species using Google and Google Scholar. Links from the host plant keys for the above Lepidoptera species have also been created.

20th September 2007 - Lepidoptera species - Acrocercops brongniardella to Ectoedemia weaveri

Species pages have been created for all mining Lepidoptera alphabetically by genus from Acrocercops brongniardella to Ectoedemia weaveri. These species pages include a list of the known host genera and species recorded in Britain and elsewhere plus links to British Leafminers, Bladmineerders en plantengallen van Europa, UKMoths and Fauna Europaea and links to search for species using Google and Google Scholar. Links from the host plant keys for the above Lepidoptera species have also been created.

Checklists for all known British non-dipterous miners have been created with links to the Lepidoptera species pages. The Diptera checklists have been updated to include original combinations as well as synonyms.

3rd September 2007 - Hosts - Common Names Index

Host common name index updated for hosts A - Z.

28th August 2007 - Coleoptera, Hymenoptera and Lepidoptera Host Genera F-Z

Lists of the non-dipterous leaf-miners recorded in Britain added for all host genera from F - Z. Additional host genera pages added for non-dipterous miners and host scientific name index updated.

21st August 2007 - Coleoptera, Hymenoptera and Lepidoptera Host Genera A-E

Lists of the non-dipterous leaf-miners recorded in Britain added for all host genera from A - E. Additional host genera pages added for non-dipterous miners and host scientific name index updated.

Test site renamed as 'The leaf and stem mines of British flies and other insects' by Brian Pitkin and Colin Plant.

11th August 2007 - Coleoptera, Hymenoptera and Lepidoptera added to keys

Lists of the non-dipterous leaf-miners recorded in Britain are being added under the relevant host genus. The host associations are from the British Leafminers website, combining the lists compiled as a precursor to AIDGAP keys TO LEAF MINERS by Brian Pitkin and Colin Plant and those cited on the individual species pages by Rob Edmunds.

The lists include external links (where they exist) to relevant pages on other websites. The linked pages on the British Leafminers and Bladmineerders en plantengallen van Europa websites usually include one or more images of a mine. Together these linked pages should provide a means of identifying the mines of the majority (>70%) of the known non-dipterous leaf-miners recorded in Britain.

The linked pages on Fauna Europaea do not include images, but do include classification, synonymy and distribution in Europe and elsewhere.

1st July 2007 - Test version launched

Test version was launched as 'The leaf and stem mines of British flies' by Brian Pitkin.
