Moona , a new genus of tetrastichine gall inducers (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) on seeds of Corymbia (Myrtaceae) in Australia

Kim, Il-Kwon; McDonald, Maurice; La Salle, John

Description

Moona spermophaga Kim & La Salle gen. & sp. nov. (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae: Tetrastichinae) is described from eastern Australia. This species induces galls on the seeds of two species of Corymbia (Myrtaceae), can achieve quite high levels of infestation, and has the potential to become another invasive species associated with eucalypts which has escaped Australia. Moona is related to Quadrastichodella, and similarities and differences between these genera are discussed.
