Cecidomyiidae (Diptera, Insecta): richness of species and distribution in Brazil

Abstract: Most Neotropical species of Cecidomyiidae (Diptera) have been described from Brazil, but a list of species with occurrence in the country has never been published. Little is known about their distribution and richness in the Brazilian phytogeographic domains. Additionally, a list of host plant species has never been gathered. The present study aims to fill these knowledge gaps and provides an overview of this family in Brazil. For this, data were obtained mainly from the literature, but also from the Cecidomyi… Show more

“…The most speciose genera of Cecidomyiidae in SC are among the most speciose in Brazil, so this result matches the Brazilian pattern (Maia 2021). On the other hand, the plant families with the greatest richness of gall midge species in SC were Nyctaginaceae and Calophyllaceae, differing from the Brazilian pattern, where Fabaceae, Asteraceae, and Myrtaceae are the highlights.…”
