Dasineura harrisoni: galls on Filipendula vulgaris

Filipendula vulgaris, France, dép. Maine-et-Loire, Belleville-en-Layon, Mont Benault, 3.vii.2018, leg Olivier Durand © Jérôme Tourneur

gall

More or less globular, smooth swellings, either of the stem or petioles, or the leaves. In the latter case the galls are smaller, protruding at both sides of the blade. The galls often are grouped and then the galls and their single larval chamber tend coalesce to a some degree. Larvae in principle solitary, red; they pupate in the gall in a tough, leathery cocoon. Bivoltine.

hostplants

Rosaceae, monophagous

Filipendula ulmaria, vulgaris.

synonyms

Dasineura jaapiana Rübsaamen, 1917 – homonym. The drawing of galls of Dasineura ulmaria (Perrisia ulmariae) on Filipendula vulgaris in Houard (1908a) very probably applies to harrisoni.

notes

Because the leaf galls occur only on F. vulgaris, and the stem galls only on F. ulmaria the question easily arises if perhaps two species are involved.
