Euura plicadaphnoides ( KOPELKE, 2007 )

comb. nov.

* Euura plicadaphnoides ( KOPELKE, 2007)   comb. nov. [= Phyllocolpa plicadaphnoides KOPELKE, 2007   ]

Brandenburg: 5 ♀, 2 ♂, Landkreis Märkisch-Oderland, Müncheberg, ZALF Gelände, 52.515°N 14.115°E, 20– 26.04.2009; 1 ♀, 30.04.2010. All specimens swept from Salix daphnoides   . Numerous larvae and leaf-folds (Figs 5–6) on S. daphnoides, Müncheberg, Seelower Str.   , 52.50150°N 14.15320°E, June 2013.

First records from Germany.

This species was described from the Alpine regions of Austria and Switzerland ( KOPELKE 2007), and is monophagous on Salix daphnoides   , which in Germany is native only to the Alps and the associated river systems. However, it has been widely planted outside its natural range because of its attractive appearance and utility as a food source for honeybees. BENEŠ (2015) recorded E. plicadaphnoides   from the Czech Republic. In contrast to Euura acutifoliae (ZINOVJEV, 1985)   , another gallmaking sawfly on S. daphnoides   , that is widespread throughout Germany, galls of E. plicadaphnoides   have in Germany so far only been found in Müncheberg.
