status

 

Ozotrioza laurinearum Kieffer, 1905 

Distribution. India: West Bengal ( Kieffer 1905).

Host plant. Possibly Beilschmiedia sikkimensis  ( Lauraceae  ).

Comments. Kieffer’s (1905) description of Ozotrioza laurinearum  is not diagnostic, the type material destroyed and the host identification uncertain. The species was not reported again since its original description and its identity is doubtful. Trioza beilschmiediae Yang, 1984  , another Asian species associated with Beilschmiedia  , matches the description of O. laurinearum  in several aspects such as the structure of the antennae, forewings and hind legs, in addition to the gall morphology, but is distinctly smaller. The two species may be closely related. See also comments on Ozotrioza styracearum  .
