Abstract

Galls on Bauhinia cupulata (Fabaceae) were investigated in two physiognomies of the Cerrado, riparian and dry forest, in the municipality of Barreiras (Western Bahia, Brazil) from October 2012 to July 2014. Four insect gall morphotypes were found. They were characterized based on shape, color, indumentum, plant organ of occurrence and galling taxon. A new galling species, Schizomyia barreirensis, is described, illustrated (larva, pupa, male, female and gall) and compared to other Neotropical congeneric species.

Introduction

Many Brazilian inventories point out the Fabaceae as one of the plant families with the highest number of insect galls (Araújo et al., 2011, 2014, 2015; Coelho et al., 2009; Fernandes et al., 1988, 1997; Gonçalves-Alvim and Fernandes, 2001; Luz et al., 2012; Maia and Fernandes, 2004; Santos et al., 2012; Urso-Guimarães and Scareli-Santos, 2006).

Among this family, Bauhinia Plum. ex L. Plum. is a speciose pantropical genus, within 150–160 species (Vaz and Tozzi, 2003). It is more abundant in the Neotropics with around 110 species, 98 of them recorded in Brazil (Vaz and Tozzi, 2003). Only 13 species of this genus, B. acuruana Moric, B. brevipes Vogel, B. cheilantha (Bong.) Steud., B. curvula Benth., B. forcicata Link., B. holophylla (Bong.) Steud., B. longifolia (Bong.) Steud., B. mollis (Bong.), B. cf. outimouta Aubl., B. pulchella Benth., B. rufa Graham, B. ungulata L. and Bauhinia cupulata Benth. host insect galls in Brazil (Araújo et al., 2011, 2015; Coelho et al., 2009; Costa et al., 2014; Fernandes et al., 1988, 1997; Gonçalves-Alvim and Fernandes, 2001; Luz et al., 2012; Saito and Urso-Guimarães, 2012; Urso-Guimarães and Scareli-Santos, 2006; Urso-Guimarães et al., 2003; Lima and Calado, 2018). Additionally, morphotypes were recorded on undetermined species of Bauhinia (Araújo et al., 2012, 2015; Carneiro et al., 2009; Fernandes et al., 1997; Maia, 2014; Maia and Carvalho-Fernandes, 2016; Nogueira et al., 2016; Ribeiro et al., 2019; Santos et al., 2012; Silva et al., 2018). According to Silva et al. (2018), Bauhinia hosts a great diversity of insect galls, which probably is due to genus be very speciose. Nevertheless, only three galling species were identified: Asphondylia micropillata Maia, 2005, Schizomyia macropillata Maia, 2005 and S. tuiuiu Urso-Guimarães and Amorim, 2002. The other gallers were identified in order or family level.

In the present study, Bauhinia cupulata Benth. (Fabaceae), popularly known as “pata-de-vaca”, was surveyed for insect galls. It is a native shrub or a small tree that occurs in the states of Alagoas, Bahia, Ceará, Maranhão, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Piauí, Rio Grande do Norte, Sergipe, Goiás, Pará, Tocantins, Distrito Federal, Mato Grosso, and Mato Grosso do Sul and can be found in three phytogeographic domains: Amazon, Cerrado and Caatinga (Vaz and Tozzi, 2003). Galls on Bauhinia cupulata have been cited by Lima and Calado (2018).

This study aims to characterize the insect galls in Bauhinia cupulata and describe a new species of Schizomyia, which induces a leaf gall on this host plant.

Material and methods

Studied area: Two physiognomies of Cerrado were investigated in the municipality of Barreiras (western portion of the state of Bahia, Brazil): a riparian forest area at Rio de Ondas in Fazenda do Gentil (45°14′35.17″W and 12°12′46.51″S) and a dry forest area in the Campus Reitor Edgard Santos, Universidade Federal do Oeste da Bahia – UFOB (45°01′06.54″W and 12°08′53.05″S).

Field works were developed monthly from October 2012 to July 2014. Fertile branches of the host plant were collected and dried. The exsiccate was identified by Juliana Ribas de Menezes (UFOB) as Bauhinia cupulata and the voucher material was deposited in the herbarium of UFOB. Fifty individuals of the host plant were surveyed for insect galls. Each gall morphotype was photographed and characterized by shape, color, organ plant, presence/absence of trichomes, number of internal chambers and galling insect. For leaf galls, the occurrence in the adaxial or abaxial surface was observed.

To obtain the adults, two galled branches of each individual of the host plant were randomly bagged in the field with “voil” until the galls putrefaction. The bags were weekly checked. Other samples were taken to the laboratory, where they were dissected to obtain larvae and pupae of each galling insect. Adults and immature stages were fixed in 70% alcohol in labeled tubes. Later, they were mounted on slides, following the methodology outlined by Gagné (1994). Keys present in Gagné (1994) were used to identify the genera. Part of the material is deposited in the Entomological Colletion of Museu Nacional, Rio de Janeiro (MNRJ) and part in the Entomological Collection of the UFOB. Morphological terminology for adults and immature stages follows that of Gagné (1994).

Results

Four gall morphotypes were found on Bauhinia cupulata. One is globoid, one-chambered, on the leaf adaxial surface. It is induced by Schizomyia sp. (Diptera, Cecidomyiidae). This gall suffers morphological changes during its development. In the early stage, it is green and glabrous. Later, it becomes entirely covered with red trichomes. Then, the trichomes become white and finally brown in the mature gall (Figs. 1–6). The other is fusiform, brown, glabrous, one-chambered, on stems. Its inducer was not determined, as the galls were already empty when collected, presenting several emergence holes (Fig. 7). The third morphotype is globoid, brown, glabrous, one-chambered, on stems. It is induced by Asphondylia sp. (Diptera, Cecidomyiidae) (Figs. 8–10). The fourth is globoid, greenish or yellowish, with trichomes, projected simultaneously on the leaf adaxial and abaxial surfaces. It is induced by Alycaulini (Diptera, Cecidomyiidae) (Figs. 11 and 12). Considering the high specificity of the galling species, these inducers are probably new, as there is no described gall midge species in association with Bauhinia cupulata.

A more detailed morphological study of Schizomyia sp. confirmed that it belongs to a new species, which is described herein. Schizomyia Kieffer, 1889 is characterized by presenting needlelike ovipositor, four-segmented palpi, and larva with four pairs of terminal papillae (Gagné, 1994). This is a cosmopolitan genus with 55 species, eleven Neotropical, namely: S. ipomoeae Felt, 1910; S. loroco Gagné, 2008; S. manihoti Tavares, 1925; S. maricaensis Souza and Maia, 2007; S. microcapillata Maia, 2005; S. rivinae Felt, 1908; S. santosi Maia and Araújo, 2009; S. serjaniae Möhn 1960; S. spherica Maia and Oliveira, 2007; S. stachytarphetae Barnes 1932; and S. tuiuiu Urso-Guimarães and Amorim 2002 (Gagné and Jaschhof, 2017).

Etymology. The specific epithet “barreirensis” refers to the type-locality: Barreiras, Bahia, Brazil.

Remarks. The Schizomyia species known from the Western Hemisphere can be divided into two groups based on acropod features, one with falcate claws and empodia no more than 1/3 the length of the claws and the other with hook-like tarsal claws and empodia nearly as long as the claws. The new species belongs to the second group, which also includes S. ipomoeae Felt, 1910, S. maricaensis Souza & Maia, 2007, S. macrocapillata Maia, 2005, S. santosi Maia & Araújo, 2009, S. serjaniae Möhn, 1960, S. spherica Maia & Oliveira, 2007, S. stachytarphetae Barnes, 1932, and S. tuiuiu Urso-Guimarães & Amorim, 2002. Only two of them, S. macrocapillata and S. tuiuiu, induce galls on the same plant family and same plant genus of those of S. barreirensis, but in different host species: B. brevipes Vogel, B. rufa (Bong.) Steud., and B. cupulata respectively. These three species were collected in Cerrado areas.

Among the second group of species, S. barreirensis presents more morphological similarities to S. macropillata regarding the adults’ characters. The number of frontoclipeal setae is 14–18 in S. barreirensis, 14–16 in S. macropillata, 53 in S. maricaensis, 13–24 in S. santosi, 20 in S. spherica, 14 in S. tuiuiu, no data on S. serjaniae). The gonostyli are rectangular to ovoid in S. barreirensis, S. macropillata, S. maricaensis and S. macropillata, conical in S. santosi,; claviform in S. spherica, bifid in S. ipomoeae; the males of S. tuiuiu and of S. serjaniae are unknown. The needle part of the ovipositor is 1.8 times as long as the 7th sternite in S. barreirensis, 1.9 in S. macropillata, 2.6 in S. spherica, 2.8 in S. maricaensis, 5.0 in S. tuiuiu, 5.8 in S. santosi, no data on S. serjaniae). Immature phases of S. barreirensis and those of S. macropillata also present morphological similarities, such as: length of the apical seta (pupa) – 0.09mm long in S. barreirensis, 0.09–0.10mm in S. tuiuiu, 0.02–0.04mm in S. maricaensis, 0.07mm in S. santosi, 0.12mm in S. spherical, 0.08mm in S. tuiuiu, no data on S. serjaniae), length of the prothoracic spatula (pupa) – 0.18–0.20mm in S. barreirensis, 0.20mm in S. macropillata, 0.14mm in S. santosi, 0.17mm in S. spherical, 0.28–0.58mm in S. serjaniae, the larvae of S. maricaensis and of S. tuiuiu are unknown.

Many of these characters were not described for S. serjaniae, whose pupa and male are unknown. Nevertheless, the following characters can be used to distinguish the new species from S. serjaniae: shape and proportions of the last two flagellomeres (11th and 12th cylindrical and gradually shorter than the precedent in S. barreirensis; 11th ovoid, 12th globoid, both conspicuously shorter than the precedent in S. serjaniae), shape of the tarsal claws (almost straight in S. barreirensis and accentually curved in S. serjaniae), and shape of the spatula (anterior teeth with concave outer margin in S. barreirensis; anterior teeth with convex outer margin in S. serjaniae).

The new species differs from S. macropillata in the following characters: in adults – palpi with first segment obconical (spherical in the latter), labellae with acuminate apex (rounded edge in the latter), longer gonocoxites, in pupae – longer prothoracic spiracle (0.16–0.19mm in S. barreirensis and 0.06–0.09mm in S. macropillata) and dorsal spines from the 2nd to 7th abdominal segments (from the 3rd to 9th abdominal segments in S. macropillata).
