New Gall Wasp Species Attacking Chestnut Trees: Dryocosmus zhuili n. sp. (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) on Castanea henryi from Southeastern China
Although the new gall wasp species is relatively easily separated from OCGW on basis of morphology, field identification involving the two species can still be problematic because of their small body size, highly similar gall morphology, and other life history traits.
Community-wide impacts of gall insect-induced plant regrowth on biodiversity of herbivorous and predaceous arthropods on chestnut trees
It is suggested that host plant resistance against the gall insect did not affect the species richness, but arthropod abundance and community structures, and Withered galls collected from the susceptible tree showed a more favourable habitat for other arthropods.
Asian chestnut gall wasp in Tuscany: gall characteristics, egg distribution and chestnut cultivar susceptibility
Overall, the Carpinese cultivar may be less susceptible to D. kuriphilus galling compared with the Fusca and Cesurone cultivars.

In March of 2020, I received the sad news that Lionel had passed away February 27. He was 84 years old. I have many wonderful memories of Lionel, so I thought I would share some of them with the
Ethical dilemmas when using citizen science for early detection of invasive tree pests and diseases
This article is a part of the conference Detection and control of alien forest species in a changing world organized by the project LIFE ARTEMIS (LIFE15 GIE/SI/000770), co-funded by the LIFE
Transcriptome characterization and expression profiling in chestnut cultivars resistant or susceptible to the gall wasp Dryocosmus kuriphilus
A de novo assembly of the chestnut transcriptome of the resistant Euro-Japanese hybrid ‘Bouche de Bétizac’ and the susceptible cultivar ‘Madonna’, collecting RNA from buds at different stages of budburst, and generated the first reference unigene catalog for the European Chestnut.
