ARNICA. [Asteraceae]

Arnica is not recorded in Britain.

Elsewhere the agromyzids Chromatomyia 'atricornis', Phytomyza arnicae and Phytomyza conyzae and the anthomyiid Pegomyza depressiventris are recorded mining Arnica.

No non-Diptera miners are recorded on Arnica in Britain.

Elsewhere one British Diptera miner, Phytomyza arnicae, and one non-Diptera miner, Cnephasia incertana, is recorded on Arnica.

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