Distribution of Asteralobia gall midges (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) causing axillary bud galls on Ilex species (Aquifoliaceae) in Japan


Distribution of Asteralobia gall midges (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) causing axillary bud galls on Ilex species (Aquifoliaceae) in Japan



Esakia 42: 19-31



We revised and analyzed distributional information on two nominal and some unidentified Japanese Asteralobia species that produce axillary bud galls on Ilex species (Aquifoliaceae). Galls on I. maximowicziana are newly recorded from the Southwest Islands. Galls produced by respective Asteralobia species were collected from most of the distribution range of their host plants, whilst those on I. integra and on I. goshiensis were not found in some localities within the distribution range of the host plants. A wide and common distribution range of Asteralobia sasakii on I. crenata, I. crenata var. paludosa, and I. maximowicziana suggested a high dispersal ability of the species. Distribution patterns of Asteralobia soyogo on I. chinensis, I. integra, and I. pedunculosa indicated a possible host plant preference by the gall midge. An unidentified gall midge associated with I. warburgi is widely distributed in the Southwest Islands and gall dissection data as to age structure indicated that the gall midge might be different from A. sasakii.
