Abstract
Electracma minyops sp. n. (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae: Chidanotini) is described and illustrated from South Africa. The larvae form galls on white milkwood (Sideroxylon inerme L., Sapotaceae). The galls, situated about 3 to 5 cm from the tip of young shoots, cause the tips to wilt and die. About 50 % of the observed galls are also inhabited by larvae of Cecidomyidae (Diptera). Larvae of E. minyops were found in galls from July to November, whereas larvae of cecidomyids were present from August to November. Adults of the tortricid were relatively abundant from April to July.
