The citrus leafminer, Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae), was first reported in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas in August, 1994. We surveyed about 40 orchards in 1995 and 20 in 1996. Percentage of leaf infestation by the leafminer was lowest on the spring flush, and increased significantly in the early summer (May-July) and late summer flushes (Aug.-Oct.) through to late fall (Nov.-Dec.). Numbers of citrus leafminer immatures usually ranged from 0-6.8 per leaf… Expand

Population fluctuation of citrus leafminer, Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) and its parasitoids in the eastern Mediterranean region of Turkey.
TLDR
The results show that C. phyllocnistoides has an important role among the P. citrella parasitoids present in Turkey due to its frequency and the highest rates of parasitism were observed at the end of summer and in the fall. Expand
POPULATION DYNAMICS OF PHYLLOCNISTIS CITRELLA (LEPIDOPTERA: GRACILLARIIDAE) AND ITS PARASITOIDS IN TAFÍ VIEJO, TUCUMÁN, ARGENTINA
TLDR
Data showed that a clear dependence existed between percentages of parasitism and citrus leafminer population density for the most frequent parasitoid populations, and showed that C. neotropicus has an important role among the native species present in Argentina. Expand
Establishment of Citrostichus phyllocnistoides (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) as a biological control agent for the citrus leafminer Phyllocnistis citrella (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) in Spain
TLDR
A program of introduction of exotic parasitoids for the biological control of the citrus leafminer Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton was carried out in Valencia between 1996 and 1999, and this parasitoid expanded to all citrus grown in continental Spain and the Balear Islands, becoming the most abundant Parasitoid in all the orchards, and displacing native and other introduced parasitoidal species.

Introduced and native parasitoids of Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton in Greece: short term post-release evaluation
TLDR
The Citrus Leafminer (CLM) Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) is considered an important pest of citrus, damaging mainly nursery plants in Greece, and the percent of parasitism increased to its maximum level during November, at the end of the sampling period in both years.

Parasitismo em Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) em pomares de Citros em Montenegro, RS
TLDR
The correlation and linear regression tests indicated a strong influence, in the parasitism index, of the host populational density registered in the previous 45 and 135 days of the citrus-leafminer. Expand
[Parasitism in Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) in Citrus orchards in Montenegro, RS, Brazil].
TLDR
The correlation and linear regression tests indicated a strong influence, in the parasitism index, of the host populational density registered in the previous 45 and 135 days of the citrus-leafminer. Expand
Determination of the natural mortality factors of Citrus leafminer (Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae)) in Adana
TLDR
It was determined that predators are as effective as the parasitoids in the biological control of the pest. Expand
Determination of the natural mortality factors of Citrus leafminer, Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) in Adana Province, Turkey
TLDR
It was determined that predators are as effective as the parasitoids in the biological control of the pest. Expand

Variação sazonal dos estágios imaturos de Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) em pomares de Citrus sinensis sob dois sistemas de cultivo
TLDR
A relationship between population size and resource availability (young leaves) was observed, however, population establishment does not depend exclusively on the existence of resources, but also on suitable climatic conditions, as evidenced by the absence of attacks on the first shooting, which began in late winter.
