scientific name

Trioza magnoliae ( Ashmead, 1881 )
status

 

Trioza magnoliae ( Ashmead, 1881)  

Materials examined. USA: Florida: Specimens from Collier, Franklin, Lake, Miami-Dade, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, and St. Lucie counties ( FSCA, dry and slide mounted, ethanol).

Diagnosis. Description by Tuthill (1943). Separated from other Florida psyllids as indicated in the keys above.

Distribution. Mexico, USA (FL, GA) ( Hodkinson 1988).

Host plants. Persea borbonia   (L.) Spreng., P . palustris (Raf.) Sarg.   ( Lauraceae   ).

Comments. This species, widely distributed in Florida, induces pouch galls on Persea borbonia   and Persea palustris ( Mead 1963)   . Although the insect was named after sweetbay, Magnolia virginiana   L. ( Magnoliaceae   ), this is an unlikely host. It is possible that Ashmead (1881) confused one of the Persea   species with M . virginiana ( Mead 1963)   . Significantly, T . magnoliae   does not colonize Persea americana Mill.   (avocado).
