The leaf and stem mines of British flies and other insects

(Coleoptera, Diptera, Hymenoptera and Lepidoptera)

by Brian Pitkin, Willem Ellis, Colin Plant and Rob Edmunds




The family currently includes 15 genera and 277 species placed in 3 subfamilies as follows: Chrysolampinae (6/63), Perilampinae (6/202), Philomidinae (2/11), unplaced (1/1). - See more at:

Only 10 species of Perilampidae are recorded in Great Britain and Ireland and only one of these is recorded as a parasitoid of a miner.

Unless otherwise stated, all parasitoid / host miner associations of Chalcidoidea are extracted from the Universal Chalcidoidea Database by Dr John Noyes.

Clicking a chalcidoid name will search the database and return the synonymy, taxonomy, distribution, associates (both host plants and host insects), biology, economic references and images of that parasitoid.

Clicking on a miner host name will open that species page on this website.
