Some records of parasitoid wasps associated with gall wasps (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) in Istanbul, Turkey

Abstract :

Cynipid galls, represent physically bounded microcosms for parasitoid wasps along with other inhabitants of galls, such as gall wasps and phytophagous inquilines. In the current work, 11 parasitoid species and one seed-feeder were identified belonging to five families; Eurytomidae, Ormyridae, Pteromalidae, Torymidae, and Ichneumonidae. The species Torymus cerri Mayr and T. notatus (Walker) are new records for Turkey. In addition, some new associations between parasitoid wasp species and host cynipid galls were recorded
