First record of Epichrysocharis burwelli from Mexico, a new invasive gall wasp attacking Corymbia (Myrtaceae).

Abstract

The eulofid Epichrysocharis burwelli Schauff was reported for the first time in Mexico. The species causes economic and aesthetic damage by producing small galls on leaves of Corymbia citriodora (Hook.) K.D. Hill & L.A.S. Johnson. E. burwelli, presumed to be of Australasian origin, is mentioned only in the United States, Brazil, and Portugal.
