Cerroneuroterus Melika & Pujade-Villar, 2010


Cerroneuroterus Melika & Pujade-Villar, 2010  

A Palearctic genus with nine species, inducing bud and leaf galls on oaks from section Cerris. Adults most closely resemble those of Neuroterus ( Melika et al. 2010)   .Three valid species are currently known from the Eastern Palaearctic and six species are known from the Western Palaearctic ( Melika et al. 2010). Three of the latter occur in Israel, where they develop on Q. ithaburensis   , Q. libani   and Q. cerris   . An additional species in Israel appears to be undescribed.
