Type material. The type material of this species is deposited in the Naturhistorische Museum of Vienna and was revised by Melika & Bechtold (2001) who designed lectotype and paralectotypes (not herein examined). According to them, types consist of 11 males and 3 females on 11 pins; all labelled as "Collect. G. Mayr" and "Esch. acaciae G. Mayr.  Type;" 8 pins with additional red label " TYPUS," which, however, do not originate from Mayr. The type material also includes approximately 40 galls. All specimens are damaged in some way and lack some parts of the body. The type locality is unknown.

Material examined. 4 males, 6 females, “ ARGENTINA, Santiago del Estero, ex galls Prosopis alba  ( Fabaceae  ), galls collected 23 /IX/ 2011, adults emerged X/ 2011. J. Martin Cano leg”. 50 males, 78 females, “ ARGENTINA, Mendoza, Luján de Cuyo, ex galls Prosopis flexuosa  , collected 27 /XI/ 2011, adults emerged XII/ 2011. G. San Blas leg”. Additionally, we examined the galls of this species, collected at the National Park Rio Pilcomayo ( Formosa province) on Prosopis alba  (24 /IX/ 2012). J. Martin Cano leg.
