status

 

Genus Sterculapion Rheinheimer, 1999 

Like several Australian members of Sterculapion ( Rheinheimer 1997)  , this sole representative of the subfamily Apioninae  in Grande Terre is associated with a plant of the former family Sterculiaceae  (now in Malvaceae  ). Sterculapion bartramiae Rheinheimer, 1999  lives on the autochthonous, but not endemic Commersonia bartramia  . This host association has been confirmed by MW in several localities [32–34]. Details of larval development remain unknown.
