Pristiphora leucopus  

Adults with mainly white hind femora (summer morph), and larvae

England: Gloucestershire: Minchinhampton Common ( SO862008 View Materials ), 5 larvae on T. cordata   , 6.6.2008. 2♀ emerged 21.6.2008, one with white hind femora, leg. KJG. 1 parasitic wasp emerged 4.6.2008, leg. KJG   .

Norfolk: Oxborough , 3 larvae on T. cordata   collected by J. Badmin, 4.6.2004. 3♀ emerged 14– 16.6.2004, leg. KJG   .

Surrey: Wisley, RHS Gardens , Tilia Arboretum   ( TQ064577 View Materials ), 1♀ swept 19.6.2002, 1♀ swept 7.7.2005, leg. AJH   .

Further rearings from Wisley stock. The ♀ arising from eggs laid by black-legged females, rearing code KJG/2011/02 (see below), were used to establish several consecutive rearings: white-legged females emerged from rearing KJG/2011/07 (second spring generation) on 18 / 19.6.2011 and were used to start rearing KJG/2011/13 (third spring generation) from which emerged 14 white-legged ♀ between 20– 25.7.2011. These ♀ were used to start a fourth generation rearing on T. × europaea (rearing KJG/2011/14) and 13 ♀ emerged 25– 28.8.2011. One additional ♀ with black hind femora was found dead in the box on 8.9.2011. 7 ♀ from this rearing were used to start a fifth generation feeding on T. × europaea, (rearing KJG/2011/18); some of the larvae were fed on T. cordata   and some on T. × europaea, 11 ♀ emerged 21– 27.9.2011. 10 of the fifth-generation ♀ were placed in a sleeve with T. cordata   twigs 21– 24.9.2011 (rearing KJG/2011/21), but no oviposition was noted and no larvae found, leg. KJG.

Wiltshire: Ashton Keynes ( SU048938 View Materials ), 1 larva on Tilia   × europaea, 6.7.2003, 1♀ emerged 18.7.2003, leg. KJG. 1♀ swept 7.4.2011 at Upper Waterhay SSSI, Ashton Keynes ( SU068937 View Materials ), an unimproved neutral meadow with no Tilia   , leg. KJG. Warminster ( ST879442 View Materials ), 2 larvae on T. cordata   , 8.7.2003, 2♀ emerged 22.7.2003, leg. KJG.
