Cestrum sp.  

Stem gall, globoid, green, glabrous and multi-chambered ( Fig. 4C View Figure 4 ).

Previous records: Galls on Cestrum   were recorded in Bertioga (SP) (Maia et al., 2008), Santa Teresa, (ES) ( Maia et al., 2014), Mato Grosso do Sul (Urso-Guimarães et al., 2016). Maia et al. (2008) compiled the records of galls for four host plant species, three galls induced by Aphidae   ( Hemiptera   ) and one induced by cecidomyiidae ( Diptera   ), found by other authors for the genus Cestrum   ( Tavares, 1909; Tavares, 1915; Houard, 1933).
