oa Madoqua - Insects and arachnids associated with Zygophyllum simplex (Zygophyllaceae) in the central Namib Desert
One hundred and seven insects and arachnids were found associated with the succulent-leaved annual Zygophyllum L. (Zygnphyllaceae) in the central Namib Desert . The species are tabulated according to trophic niche. Resident species are discussed with emphasis on behaviour, diet and seasonal periodicity. Several parasitoids were reared and associated with their hosts. Many of the species found on Z. simplex appear to be undescriptionbed.
