Abstract
The effect of host plant inundation on survivorship of Symmeria paniculata's galling herbivores was investigated in Central Amazonian floodplain forest. The majority of submerged galls were alive (62% of morphospecies 1 and 70% of morphospecies 2). Survivorship was similar between submerged leaves and new leaves that were never submerged. Some submerged galls were eaten by fish. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of galling insect survivorship under severe flooding.
