Elatobium Mordvilko


Genus Elatobium Mordvilko  

Elatobium abietinum (Walker)  

TAS: Callitris rhomboidea   ( Cupressaceae   )?

Remarks: The host records for Callitris rhomboidea   are included here but are seen as dubious. The species is only known to feed on limited members of the family Pinaceae   , usually Abies   and Picea ( Holman, 2009)   . Collected in 1960, label data for the specimens only gives the common name of Oyster Bay Pine (= Callitris rhomboidea   ). While potentially a host misidentification, it is included here to encourage further research and collections.
