ABSTRACT

The genus Lipara Meigen, 1830 (Diptera: Chloropidae) is known for its ability to induce galls in Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin. ex Steud., 1841 (Poaceae). Such galls are important microhabitats that give a resource to other Chloropid species that live in them. In the Iberian Peninsula, the Lipara galls and their associated fauna remain unstudied. Here, new records of Lipara lucens Meigen, 1830, L. similis Schiner, 1854 and their gall inquilines, Calamoncosis minima (Strobl, 1893) and Cryptonevra flavitarsis (Meigen, 1830) in the Iberian Peninsula are presented, combining both, field sampling and photosharing website information. Lipara lucens, C. minima and Cr. flavitarsis are recorded for the first time from the Spanish mainland. Although they are an overlooked group of species, they seem to be widespread in the Iberian Peninsula.

Key words: Calamoncosis minima; photosharing; Chloropidae; Cryptonevra flavitarsis; Diptera; gall-inquilines; Iberian Peninsula; Lipara; new records.

 

RESUMEN

Nuevos datos sobre la distribución de Lipara Meigen, 1830 (Diptera: Chloropidae) y sus clorópidos inquilinos en la península ibérica

El género Lipara Meigen, 1830 (Diptera: Chloropidae) tiene la capacidad de inducir agallas en Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin. ex Steud., 1841 (Poaceae). Dichas agallas son microhábitats importantes que aportan recursos a otros clorópidos que viven dentro de ellas. En la península ibérica, las agallas de Lipara y la fauna asociada no han sido bien estudiadas. En este trabajo se recogen nuevas citas de Lipara lucens Meigen, 1830, L. similis Schiner, 1854 y sus inquilinos, Calamoncosis minima (Strobl, 1893) y Cryptonevra flavitarsis (Meigen, 1830) en la península ibérica, combinando muestreos en campo, con información disponible en portales fotográficos. Se citan por primera vez en la España peninsular L. lucens, C. minima y Cr. flavitarsis. A pesar de que son un grupo que ha sido poco estudiado, estas especies parecen estar ampliamente distribuidas por la península ibérica.

Palabras clave: Calamoncosis minima; Chloropidae; Cryptonevra flavitarsis; Diptera; inquilinos de agallas; Lipara; península ibérica; portales fotográficos; nuevas citas.

IntroductionTOP

Grass-flies (Diptera: Chloropidae) are a widely distributed Diptera family occupying a vast range of habitats, although most species prefer open habitats such as grasslands and wetlands (Nartshuk & Andersson, 2013; Nartshuk, 2014) and most of them live on Poaceae and Cyperaceae (Nartshuk, 2014). There are many studies about this group in Europe, some of them focused on the Mediterranean region (Collin, 1946; De Bruyn, 1989; Nartshuk, 2004, 2011, 2012, 2013; Nartshuk & Andersson, 2013), although the knowledge of the chloropid fauna of the Iberian Peninsula remains incomplete (De Bruyn, 1999; De Bruyn & Báez, 2002; Nartshuk, 2004; Nartshuk et al., 2013; Ebejer & Andrade, 2015).

Among Chloropidae genera, Lipara Meigen, 1830 has attracted the attention of entomologists for its ability to induce cigar-like apical galls on Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin. ex Steud., 1841 (Poaceae) (Chvála et al., 1974). There are four recognized species in Europe: L. lucens Meigen, 1830, L. pullitarsis Doskočil & Chvála, 1971, L. rufitarsis Loew, 1858 and L. similis Schiner, 1854. Their biology, taxonomy, ecology and distribution has been well studied in Europe (Mook, 1967; Chvála et al., 1974; De Bruyn, 1987; Grochowska, 2006, 2007, 2013; Nartshuk, 2013), although, up to now, there are few records in the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands. Thus, Nartshuk (2004) recorded for the first time the genus Lipara (L. similis) in the Province of Castellón (Spain). Later, Ebejer (2006) cited L. lucens, L. rufitarsis and L. similis in Mallorca (Balearic Islands, Spain) and finally, Ebejer & Andrade (2015) recorded L. lucens from the district of Aveiro (Portugal). Thereby, the knowledge of Lipara species distribution and biology in the Iberian Peninsula remains inadequate.

Its life cycle is well understood (Chvála et al., 1974), as well as the development of the gall (Vandevyvere & De Bruyn, 1998). All Lipara species are univoltine and lay the eggs on P. australis leaves. After hatching, the phytophagous first instar larvae climbs to the stem apex and installs itself in the upper rolled leaves of the stem. The larva feeds on the enrolled leaves, starting the gall induction. Thereby, the newly formed internodes are shortened and thickened (Figs. 2C-D). In the case of L. lucens and L. pullitarsis, once the gall is completely developed, the third-instar larvae gnaws through the shoot apical meristem and feeds on the hypertrophied parenchyma. On the other hand, L. rufitarsis and L. similis, remain in the upper rolled and hardened leaves and feed on the panicle. Finally, the larva goes into diapause inside the gall until next spring, when it pupariates and later the adult emerges.

The galls of Lipara, especially those of L. lucens, also serve as microhabitats and important refuges for other chloropids and other insects such as Hymenoptera, Coleoptera or Lepidoptera (De Bruyn, 1985; Nartshuk & Andersson, 2013; Heneberg et al., 2014; Bogusch et al., 2015, 2016; Astapenková et al., 2017).

Materials and MethodsTOP

As galls are the extended phenotype of the cecidogenic organism (Stone & Schönrogge, 2003), it is enough to sample galls induced by Lipara in P. australis in order to identify the species. In this way, it is also possible to find the associated chloropids living as inquilines in those galls. Between January and October of 2017, one-year-old galls were sampled in several localities throughout Spain (Table 1). They were kept individually in Petri dishes at room temperature until adult fly emergence. The galls were identified using the key of Chvála et al. (1974), and the chloropids inhabiting them were identified using keys of Grochowska (2007) and Nartshuk & Andersson (2013).

Additionally, the photography collection of the “Banco Taxonómico y Faunístico Digital de los Invertebrados Ibéricos” (BTFDII) (Biodiversidad Virtual, 2017) were reviewed in order to look for Lipara records from other Spanish localities (see Table 1).

New data of Lipara and other associated chloropids were displayed on a blank map of the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands (Instituto Geográfico Nacional, 2017) using ArcGis 10.5 (ESRI, 2016).

DiscussionTOP

Chloropids are poorly studied in many areas (De Bruyn, 1999) and thereby, their knowledge is still poor. In this work, the knowledge on the distribution of Lipara and other gall-inquiline chloropids is extended. Thus, L. lucens, Cr. flavitarsis and C. minima are recorded for the first time from the Spanish mainland. They seem to be widespread in the ibero-balearic region, since they have been found from Portugal (Ebejer & Andrade, 2015) to the Balearic Islands (Ebejer, 2006) and in many provinces of Spain (Nartshuk, 2004). Furthermore, most of the Iberian Peninsula has a Mediterranean bioclimate (Rivas-Martínez et al., 2004) and freshwater habitats are characterized by seasonal flood and dry periods (Gasith & Resh, 1999). These features are suitable for Lipara species, since they prefer Phragmites growing in temporary flooded sites (Mook, 1967; Chvála et al., 1974; De Bruyn, 1987).

Many of the inquiline chloropids that can inhabit Lipara galls (Nartshuk & Andersson, 2013) have already been documented in the Iberian Peninsula, although they have not always been recorded inhabiting galls: Calamoncosis minima, C. duiensis, Cryptonevra flavitarsis, Cr. nigritarsis, Elachiptera cornuta, Eribolus hungaricus and Incertella zuercheri (De Bruyn & Báez, 2002; Ebejer, 2006; Ebejer & Andrade, 2015). However, in this study, only two of them (C. minima and Cr. flavitarisis) have been recorded associated with Lipara lucens galls. Thus, Cr. flavitarsis seems to be a common inquiline of L. lucens galls in the study area, living in the rolled leaves of the upper part of the gall (Nartshuk & Andersson 2013). On the other hand, based on the results, C. minima is more difficult to find living in Lipara galls.

It can be pointed out that the information available on the Internet turned out to be a useful source in the taxonomic (Zeegers & Álvarez Fidalgo, 2016), biogeographic (Pérez Hidalgo et al., 2009; García-Barros et al., 2011) and ethological studies (Olivero & Robillar, 2017). Nevertheless, such information should be up-to-date, reliable and comprehensive (Carling & Harrison, 1996). In this study, the records of BTFDII were useful to refine the distribution of Lipara spp. in the Iberian Peninsula. Nevertheless, further studies are necessary in order to improve the knowledge of the biology, distribution and associated fauna of Lipara spp.
