Pegomya bicolor (Wiedemann, 1817)
One of numerous similar species, with the need for a specimen to determine any accurate identification. The larvae mine the leaves of Dock (Rumex sp) and other species, forming large blotch mines. Pegomya bicolor is likely to be widespread and common in Nottinghamshire, but is grossly under-recorded.
