Abstract

Four invasive alien phytophagous insects new to Armenia.

Abstract

In July 2019 four species of invasive alien phytophagous insects were recorded during the surveys of woody green spaces in Dilijan (Armenia): Cameraria ohridella Deschka et Dimić, 1986 (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae), Obolodiplosis robiniae (Haldeman, 1847) (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae), Prociphilus (Meliarhizophagus) fraxinifolii (Riley, 1879) (Hemiptera: Aphididae) and Euura tibialis Newman, 1837 (Hymenoptera: Tenthredinidae). This is the first record of these species for Armenia, and for the latter two also the first record for Transcaucasia.
