Genus Agromyza Fallén 

This genus is well represented in the Palaearctic region. Only four species, Agromyza latipennis Malloch, A.  oryzae (Munakata), A. panici Meijere  and A. phragmitidis Hendel  , have hitherto been known to occur in Thailand (Sasakawa 1981; Spencer 1961 a, 1986). The occurrence of three more species, A. comosa Spencer, A.  flavisquama Malloch and A. pennisetivora Spencer  , are recorded below for the first time.

Agromyza flavisquama  , A. latipennis  , A. oryzae  , A. panici  , A. pennisetivora  and A. phragmitidis  are known as leafminers of the Poaceae  ( Gramineae  ). The male genitalia of A. comosa  , figured in Sasakawa (1972: fig. 1) and Spencer (1962 a: fig. 26), are characteristic of these grass-miners.
