Abstract

Two new species of oak gallwasp, Loxaulus hyalinus Pujade-Villar & Melika n. sp. and L. laeta Pujade-Villar n. sp. are described from Mexico. They represent the first records of this genus in Mexico. Both species are known from asexual generations and induce galls on endemic Mexican Quercus: Q. dysophylla Benth. and Q. laeta, respectively. Data on the diagnosis, distribution, and biology of the new species are given.
