Gall Wasps (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae)
Suborder: Apocrita (Parasitica)
In general, cynipids are either gall-makers or inquilines in galls made by other species. About 1,360 species have been described, but it is estimated that 3,000–6,000 species actually exist. Gall-making cynipids (Cynipinae) are similar to true parasitoids in...
