Eurycoccus tamariscus Williams


Eurycoccus tamariscus Williams  

This species was originally described from Pakistan, off Tamarix aphylla   ( Tamaricaceae   ) from Kalabagh and off T. indica   from Gharo ( Williams, 1984), but has not been recorded since. However, E. tamariscus   has now been collected on Tamarix sp.   in Systan and Baluchestan Provinces in Iran, in galls apparently made by another insect (PPDRI).
