Norway’s gall midge fauna

In the period 2019-2022 a team of specialists and collectors has collected throughout Norway over 1500 samples of plant galls, from more than 350 plant species. Participants of the project were Hallvard Elven, Zoya Fedotova,and Simon Haarder, Ove Sørlibråten, Lars Ove Hansen, Trude Starholm, and Arne Fjellberg. 143 Cecidomyiidae species were identified in the material collected. About half of the samples could successfully by reared, enabling a study of the adults. Over 600 photos of the material have been made by Hallvard Elven and made available on the Internet:
