Andricus targionii Kieffer   (s. str.)

Judging from the inferred phylogenetic relationships, the name A. targionii   (s. str.) should be applied to the univoltine thelytokous species of the A. mukaigawae   complex on Q. aliena   in China. Abe (1986) regarded the populations on Q. liaotungensis   , Q. mongolica   , and Q. dentata   in Shenyang, China, as members of A. targionii   (s. lat.). Since clustered flowershaped galls appear on Q. dentata   in spring when bud burst occurs (Weih 1965), I regard the population on Q. dentata   as A. pseudoflos   . The life cycles of the populations on Q. liaotungensis   and Q. mongolica   should be clarified, because the appearance time and position of bur-shaped galls are not mentioned in Weih (1965). Abe (1986) regarded the population on Q. mongolica   in the far east of Russia ( Kovalev 1965) as a member of A. targionii   (s. lat.), but the life cycle of this population should be clarified.
