Genetic diversity, host-specificity and unusual phylogeography of a cryptic, host-associated species complex of gall-inducing scale insects

Cook, Lynette; Rowell, David M


1. Australia has a unique and speciose gall-inducing scale insect fauna that is primarily associated with Myrtaceae. Much of the diversity is currently undescribed or uncharacterised. 2. This study concerns Apiomorpha munita (Hemiptera), a scale insect that induces characteristic four-horned galls on eucalypts of subgenus Symphyomyrtus and exhibits extraordinary karyotypic diversity (2n = 6 - 2n > 100). The three described subspecies of A. munita are each confined to hosts in different sections...[Show more]
