scientific name

Acizzia hakeae
status

 

hakeae ( Tuthill, 1952) 

Type locality: New Zealand (introduced).

Additional distribution: Presumably Australia (but as yet undocumented). Introduced in USA, California. Host plant: Hakea acicularis  (in New Zealand), and possibly Hakea dactyloides  (in Australia, see remarks below); in California recorded from Grevillea  and Hakea  spp., including Hakea suaveolens  , Grevillea  'Noellii', and G. banksii  .

Remarks: First recorded in California, in May 2000 ( Gill 2000, 2001, 2002). Tuthill (1952) described this species, first collected in New Zealand, as “apparently introduced from Australia ” and mentions that "Keith L. Taylor of the Division of Entomology [ CSIRO], Australia, has taken a closely related species from Hakea dactyloides  in New South Wales." The Californian introduction may therefore have originated from either Australia or New Zealand.
