Cecidomyiid genus Bruggmanniella contains four
Lauraceae-associated species in Asia and 13 species associated with
various plant families in Latin American. In this article, three new
species, B. sanlianensis sp.
nov., B. turoguei sp. nov.
and B. shianguei sp. nov.,
and one newly recorded species, B.
cinnamomi, are reported on Cinnamomum
plant species (Lauraceae) from Taiwan. Molecular phylogenetic analysis
was conducted for the four Cinnamomum-associated
with B. brevipes Lin, Yang and Tokuda, B. actinodaphnes Tokuda and Yukawa,
three Pseudasphondylia and
two Daphnephila species.
Monophyly of Asian Bruggmanniella
and the single origin of Cinnamomum-associated
supported based on Neighbor-joining, Maximum-likelihood, and Bayesian
inference. The Additionally, Cinnamomum-associated
have the closest sistership with B.
brevipes that are associated with the plant genus Neolitsea (Lauraceae). These result
suggesting B. brevipes, B. actinodaphnes and B. cinnamomi are not members of
genus Bruggmanniella that was
not consistent with a recent morphology-based phylogenetic study. Among
linage, a leaf galler B.
sanlianensis sp. nov. is a sister to the clade of stem gallers,
suggesting that host organ shift from leaf to stem occurred prior to
host shift. Besides, paraphyly of the Taiwanese stem galler with
respected to Japanese B. cinnamomi
implies that the distributional range expansion of B. cinnamomi from Taiwan to Japan.
