Current hypothesis is corroborated, that is, the adequate fixation solves the false-negative results, and the new proposed protocols fill up some gaps on the detection of phenolics and lignins.

Gall-inducing Aphididae may feed directly on phloem, whereas Eriophyidae and Nematoda feed on cells lining the gall chambers, and the classification of storage tissues into three types: typical nutritive tissues (TNT), common storage tissues (CST), and nutritive-like tissues (NLT).

The aim of current study was to evaluate how different species of Cecidomyiidae can manipulate the same host plant tissues, demonstrating the potentialities of M. glomerata under distinct external signaling.

Major differences were found between the developmental pathways of non-galled leaves and galls of Calophya duvauae (Scott) on Schinus polygamus (Cav.) Cabrera (Anacardiaceae) and is suggested to result from convergence associated with the piercing feeding apparatus of the corresponding gall-inducer.

The influence of parasitoidism on the anatomical and histochemical profiles of the host leaves in a galling Lepidoptera – Bauhinia ungulata system
- C. Bedetti, B. G. Ferreira, N. M. Castro, R. Isaias
- 14 June 2013
The parasitoidized galls of Bauhinia ungulata L. (Fabaceae: Caesalpinioideae) indicate the continued stimuli from the Lepidoptera feeding on the host-plant cells, which continue to enlarge, but will no longer be used for larvae nutrition.
