Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new species or gall-wasp, Neuroterus ambrusi (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) is described from Hungary. The newly discovered species includes males and females (and is thus bisexual), and induces catkin galls on Quercus cerris. We describe the adult insects and their galls, and provide some notes on biology.
