Andricus furnessulus Weld, 1944: 12 , female, gall

Type examined. Female holotype “Nogales, Ariz. Feb. ‘35”, “ Q. oblongifolia ”, “850”, red “Type No. 56381 U.S. N. M.”, white “ Andricus furnessulus Weld, 1942 ”, “USNMENT 00802108”. Holotype deposited at the USNM, Washington. Pictures of the holotype taken by M. Buffington ( USNM) were examined (http://n 2t.net/ark:/65665/ 39cf39e1b-8994-473c-88b8-ee1d1e852019).

Diagnosis. Resembles Striatoandricus furnessae (Weld) from Mexico which induces a similar but larger gall, but differs from that species in its smaller size, particolored mesosoma, absence of the median mesoscutal line, and a completely reticulate second metasomal tergum.

Galls ( Fig. 243 View FIGURES 236–244 ). A woolly mass partly or entirely encircling small twigs, measuring up to 30 by 25 mm, pure white or rosy when young, consisting of a large number of separate biconical cells attached at a common point, each covered with long hairs, about 7 by 5 mm; shorter and broader than in S. furnessae ( Weld 1944) .

Biology. Only an asexual generation is known, inducing galls on Q. oblongifolia .
