Abstract

The sexual generation of Andricus wuhanensis Ide, Abe, Su and Zhu, new species is described from Mainland China. The gall of this species is similar to the sexual generation galls of A. pseudocurvator Tang and Melika and A. moriokae Monzen, but the adult wasps of the three species differ morphologically. The asexual generation gall of A. pseudocurvator was previously reported as that of A. moriokae from Japan, but the adult morphology has not yet been described; therefore, we here describe the asexual generation adult of A. pseudocurvator for the first time. Andricus pseudocurvator is here first recorded from Mainland China and Japan.
