leafminers, galls and fungi

Aceria elaeagnicola

Aceria elaeagnicola Farkas, 1963

on Elaeagnus

gall

in the original description Farkas writes that the species lives as a vagrant on the leaves, not causing visible effects. However, Petanović & Stanković (1999a) state that the mite causes malformations, and invaginations and evaginations of the lamina; no explanation is given of this contradiction, nor is attention drawn to the strong similarity with the galling caused by A. angustifoliae.

hostplants
