Notes

Species of Diastrophus removed from the British and Irish list:

[mayri Reinhard, 1876] The status of mayri as a British species appears to rest solely on three published references to the species: Cameron (1893), subsequently quoted in Connold (1909) and repeated by Swanton (1912). Nowhere does Cameron claim to have evidence of this species’ occurrence in Britain, merely comparing its gall to other British species of Diastrophus and Xestophanes . As there appear to be no genuine UK records it should therefore be excluded.
