An overview of the Cecidomyiidae family in Brazil is provided and it is shown that about 58% of the Brazilian fauna are known only from the type-locality and these informations can be useful for environmental conservational purposes.

Insect galls of the Brazilian Cerrado: associated fauna

This study gathered literature data to provide an overview of the arthropod fauna associated with insect galls in the Brazilian Cerrado, and found 163 gall morphotypes with secondary dwellers on 94 plant species in 37 families.




This large family is poorly known in Colombia, where only 44 species have been recorded in 20 genera, including phytophagous, predaceous and fungivorous species.

Galls and gall makers in plants from the Pé-de-Gigante Cerrado Reserve, Santa Rita do Passa Quatro, SP, Brazil.

Thirty-six morphologically different types of galls were obtained in leaves, leaflets, veins, petioles, stems, tendrils and flower buds from twenty-five species of plants in the Pé-de-Gigante
