Australasian/Oceanian Diptera Catalog -- Web Version

Go to A/O Catalog Home Page


[Originally] By Kenneth A. Spencer

Approximately 2,500 species are known in the Agromyzidae, a family of worldwide distribution, occurring from the northern extremity of Greenland to subantarctic islands in the south. Adults can be minute, with wing length of little more than 1 mm. The maximum size known is 6.5 mm. The majority of species are in the range of 2 to 3 mm.

In the Australasian/Oceanian Regions 269 species are now recorded. This is substantially more than in the Oriental Region where 217 described species are now known. There has thus been considerable speciation and proliferation in Australasia/Oceania from ancestral immigrants, which have predominantly originated from the Oriental Region (apart from those occurring in the Hawaiian and Easter islands). In Australia 150 species are known, with striking proliferation in the genus Phytoliriomyza (32 species--more than in any other region). Endemism is high (84%) compared with that of other regions.

Seventeen of the 27 known genera are represented in the regions covered in this catalog, the same number found in the Oriental Region. Only 1 genus, Kleinschmidtimyia, is endemic to the regions covered here.

Agromyzidae are exclusively phytophagous, the larvae feed either as leaf miners, internally in all parts of the plant, or selectively in the root, stem, or flower head. Probably less than 50% are true leaf miners. There is a high degree of host specificity. However, of the 269 species recorded here, hosts are known for only 78 (29%), a figure that is lower than that in any other region. This may reflect random collecting and a lack of rearing studies.
