Identification history

Sawfly (Symphyta) Pteryperga galla 17 Apr 2019 Paul Whitington
Sawfly (Symphyta) Pteryperga sp. (genus) 29 Nov 2018 Paul Whitington
Unidentified 29 Nov 2018 KerriLee

Author's notes

Single insect, clinging to Elaeocarpus reticulatus leaf. Collected on leaf on 19/11/18 and kept for later examination. On 29/11/18 many dead larvae were found in the same container as the adult (image 5). It was then noted that the edge of the leaf which the adult was grasping was inrolled and holes were present in this inrolled portion (image 4), presumably where the larvae had eaten their way out.

There is only a single genus Pteryperga in this subfamily.

See Unidentified on 12 Jan 2017 for image of larvae provisionally identified as P. galla by Lindsay Popple. He notes that larvae of this species feed on Elaeocarpus reticulatus, the same plant on which the adult and larvae in the current record were found.
