site is the result of an on-going project, set up to photograph
and record all the leaf mining fauna which occur in Britain. Included
also are stem miners and borers. Use has been made of SLR and
Digital cameras, as well as Scanners, in compiling this site. The
leaf mining fauna include Coleoptera (beetles), Diptera (flies),
Hymenoptera (sawflies) and Lepidoptera (moths).
