Clutch size of the gall wasp Diplolepis rosae was studied in galls on Rosa spp. in Eastern Hungary and Romania, Transylvania on four dry pastures. We hypothesised that there was an optimal clutch size, and it was controlled by the emerging rate of the gall inducer and the escaping failure of hatched adults. The most frequent clutch size was 25–30 chambers, and there was a second peak around 60 chambers in each frequency distribution. The most common clutch size did not produce the highest… CONTINUE READING
