Notes:
Note of data quality: the reliability of identifications varies significantly within the collection. Many identifications have not been re-examined in the last decades and/or are based solely on the properties of the gall/mine/other plant damage. Some reared adults can be linked to the herbarium samples, but the connections are poorly documented for now.
