DescriptionBlack locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) is a significant plantation tree in Hungary, which was introduced to Hungary in the mid 18th century and now occupies more than 21.6% of the forested area (nearly 370 thousand hectares). Two species of leaf miners, Parectopa robiniella Clemens 1859 and Phyllonorycter robiniella Clemens 1859 have invaded Hungary in the last two decades. Both species have become widespread and abundant on black locust throughout the country and serious infestations cause early leaf abscission on affected trees. No detailed study on parasitoids associated with these species have been conducted; this abstract reports results from the first year of the study on their parasitoid communities.
