ISSN/ISBN: 0013-8746

The life cycle and seasonal biology is described for 2 associated cecidomyiids in needle galls of balsam fir. One species Paradiplosis tumifex Gagne, sp. nov., is responsible for the gall; the other Dasineura balsamicola (Lintner) is an inquiline that enters the newly forming gall and eventually indirectly kills the larva of P. tumifex. Characters for the separation of the 2 spp. are given. The new species is described, illustrated and compared with its 4 congeners [P. obesa, P. abietis, P. manii]. Agevillea Hubault is a new junior synonym of Paradiplosis Felt.
