Oxyna parietina (Linnaeus, 1758)
The often colourful Tephritid Flies are yet another severely under-recorded aspect of Nottinghamshire natural history. Although often noticed by ourselves, we have done little work on their photography or identification until recently. These Oxyna parietina were found in numbers in an unkempt area of Sherwood Forest CP in early May 2011, providing a first record for the NNR in the process.
