Pediobius sasae (Hymenoptera : Eulophidae), a new species from galls on dwarf bamboo (Sasa nipponica) in Japan

Hansson, Christer LU (2006) In Zootaxa p.37-45
Abstract
Pediobius sasae sp. nov. ( Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) is described from Japan. This new species belongs to the "eubius-complex" of species and is compared to the species of that group. It was reared from galls induced by an unidentified gall midge of the tribe Oligotrophini ( Diptera: Cecidomyiidae). The galls are formed on stems of dwarf bamboo (Sasa nipponica). Pediobius sasae is a solitary primary parasitoid on the gall midge, but possibly also acts as a secondary parasitoid of another parasitoid reared from the same host, an unidentified species of Torymus ( Hymenoptera: Torymidae).
