Abstract

The cynipid species (Hymenoptera, Cynipidae), which induceing galls on plants of the genus Picris (Asteraceae) in Europe, are revised. A key for the identification of adult wasps and galls of the three known species is provided. Phanacis helminthiae (De Stefani) is recorded from Sicily for the first time after since its description, and re-described with newly collected materials. The final instar larva of Phanacis caulicola is described and new biological data on the sex ratio and life-cycle of this species are given. A new species, Phanacis comosae nov. sp., is described from the Southwest portion of the Iberian Peninsula. The new species is closely allied related to P. caulicola and induces conspicuous galls in flower receptacles of Picris comosa.
