Abstract

A new species of oak gall wasp, Andricus breviramuli Pujade-Villar n. sp., is described from Mexico. The species is known only from asexual females. Data on the diagnosis, distribution, and biology of the new species are given. The wasp induces galls on twigs and young shoots of Quercus laeta Liebm. This gall wasp seems to be a serious pest of Q. laeta in Santa Fe (Delegación Cuajimalpa, DF), México City.
