Gall formation in erythrina latissima



Gall formation in erythrina latissima



Zeitschrift fuer Pflanzenphysiologie 84(4): 283-294



The chalcid galls that develop on the leaves of E. latissima are morphologically consistent, suggesting that either they have an obligate fauna, or 1 organism, probably a species of Eurytoma, dominates the whole system. Structurally the galls are as complex as cynipid galls, consisting of 4 distinct zones. Of these the nutritive and protective zones are the most important as they provide the food for the developing larvae and protection for the pupae when they overwinter in the gall on the ground. The larvae within the galls apparently exert a strong mobilizing effect and creates a strong sink which ensures the translocation of nutrients towards the galls; the leaf greatly decreases in size with increased infestation.
