Abstract

The larvae of Trioza bullatae sp. n. from the Western Cape Province, South Africa, induce conspicuous globular galls on the leaves of black stinkwood (Ocotea bullata, Lauraceae), a highly valued timber species. The new species is described, illustrated and compared to the Trioza anomalicornis group and Trioza tangae with which it may be closely related. Information is provided on the galls and their development.
