The agromyzid flies form a rather species-rich family. In the Netherlands about 200 species are known, but the group is clearly under-recorded. The larvae are miners in plants, usually making distinctive feeding patterns in the leaves. Agromyza bromi was found in 2016 in Malaise trap material collected at three localities at the Dutch coast. This is the first record of the species in the Netherlands.
