Abstract

Diagnoses, illustrations and head capsule widths of larvae of the five dominant Lepidoptera species that inhabit galls induced by Ravenelia macowaniana Pazschke (Uredinales: Pucciniaceae) on Acacia karroo Hayne in South Africa are presented. These five species constitute approximately 90 % of all the individuals. A key to the larvae inhabiting the galls is provided. This larval assemblage is a potential indicator of climate and habitat quality.
