Abstract

New data on parasitoids and inquilines occurring in galls of the cynipid hymenopteran Andricus quercustozae (Bosc, 1792) from the Lozenska Mts., Bulgaria, are presented. Bootanomyia stigmatizans (Fabricius, 1798) (Hymenoptera: Torymidae) is the most abundant parasitoid species in galls of A. quercustozae. The inquiline Pammene amygdalana (Duponchel in Godart, 1842) (Lepidoptera: Torticidae) is recorded from A. quercustozae galls from Bulgaria for the first time. Co-existence of two inquilines, P. amygdalana and Synergus umbraculus (Olivier, 1791) (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae), within the same gall on Quercus dalechampii is documented. In addition, a new gall association for Torymus cyaneus Walker, 1847 (Hymenoptera: Torymidae) is recorded.
