Fern sawfly larvae Blasticotoma filiceti Klug, 1834 (Hymenoptera: Blasticotomidae) are visited by ants: a new kind of trophobiosis



Fern sawfly larvae Blasticotoma filiceti Klug, 1834 (Hymenoptera: Blasticotomidae) are visited by ants: a new kind of trophobiosis



Russian Entomological Journal 15(1): 67-72



Fern sawfly Blasticotoma filiceti Klug, 1834 is first recorded in several regions of Central European Russia. Frothy anal excretions of larvae, living in the cells within rachis and feeding mainly on the phloem sap, attract ants and Drosophila flies. Interaction of ants with sawfly larvae can be considered as a new kind of trophobiosis: direct (not plant-mediated) Hymenopteran-Hymenopteran one. Geographical distribution of the species and peculiar life mode of larvae are discussed in detail.
