status

 

Ceroptres quereicola ( Shinji, 1938)   nom. dub.

Paraulax quereicola Shinji, 1938   . Kontyu 12(6): 203–204. Type material: lost [according to Liljeblad et al. 2008]

Ceroptres quereicola (Shinji) Liljeblad et al. 2008   . Zootaxa 1796: 27–28.

Distribution. Japan ( Shinji 1938).

Biology. Reared from unknown galls on Q. mongolica Fisch. ex Ledeb.   or Q. dentata   ( Quercus section   ), according to the original description.

Remarks. Shinji (1938) observed P. quereicola   ovopositing in swollen terminal branches on Quercus   . For the first time the combination Ceroptres quereicola ( Shinji, 1938)   appeared in Liljeblad (2002). Abe et al. (2007) suggested that C. quereicola   should be treated as an unplaced species within Ceroptres   . Later, Liljeblad et al. (2008) formally transferred P. quereicola   to Ceroptres   . We could not examine the type material of this species because it is lost ( Liljeblad et al. 2008), and the original description does not allow us to differentiate the species from the rest of Ceroptres   . Hence, we here propose to place Ceroptres quereicola ( Shinji, 1938)   as nomen dubium until the original material is found, since we do not doubt it is a Ceroptres   .
