Five types of plant galls caused by 4 spp. of Lepidoptera are described. Three of the species belong to the Gelechioidea (2 spp. of Momphidae [Microcolona pantomima Meyrick and Pauroptila galenitis Meyrick] and 1 of Gelechiidae [Dactylethra siccifolii Walshingham]) while the 4th belongs to the Thyrididae (Pyraloidea) [Cecidothyrus pexa]. Three types of galls occur on Terminalia sericea (Combretaceae) 1 occurs on Combretum molle (Combretaceae) and 1 on Solanum panduraeforme (Solanaceae).
