Wahlgreniella Hille Ris Lambers


Genus Wahlgreniella Hille Ris Lambers  

Wahlgreniella nervata* (Gillette)  

WA: Arbutus unedo   ( Ericaceae   )

Remarks: Wahlgreniella nervata   represents a new species record for Australia. First records are from 2017 on Strawberry Tree, Arbutus unedo, Walliston   , WA, col: R. Ulrich, det: C. Brumley. While only collected from Arbutus   , the specimen’s morphology does not clearly delineate between W. nervata   and W. nervata ssp. arbuti (Davidson)   using the key in Blackman (2010). The original species level name is used here for Australian specimens until further research is undertaken on the group.
