Lepidoptera from Uromycladium Galls on Acacia Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Lepidoptera were reared from Uromycladium tepperianum galls from Acacia decurrens at intervals over two years. Some 2500 individuals, representing seven species (families Tortricidae, Tineidae, Gracillariidae; Pyralidae. Stathmopodidae) are used to interpret the lepidopteran communities of these galls near Melbourne. The relative abundance of the species, their seasonality, and their attack pattern on the galls are outlined and discussed.
