Name

Waldheimia laeta (Cameron)Wikispecies linkPensoft Profile

Remarks

Waldheimia is a large genus of nearly 100 species and occurs from southwestern United States to Argentina. Waldheimia laeta is separated by its black head, wings yellow with apices black, abdomen orange with apex black, and the very short, triangular lancet with indiscernible serrulae.
The host plants of five species of Waldheimia in Costa Rica are now known: Waldheimia laeta and Waldheimia lucianocapellii are treated here. Waldheimia suturalis (Cameron) feeds on very young leaves of Cissus rhombifolia Vahl, Waldheimia fascipennis (Norton) feeds on very young leaves of Cissus pseudosicyoides Croat (Vitaceae), and Waldheimia interstitialis (Cameron) feeds on leaves of Hamelia patens Jacq. (Rubiaceae) (Smith and Janzen 2003b[1]).

Distribution

Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama, Peru, Trinidad, Venezuela (Smith, unpublished)

Food plant and biology

One specimen, 09-SRNP-6456, found feeding on very young leaves of ACG dry forest Cissus alata Jacq. (Vitaceae), the same host genus as Waldheimia suturalis and Waldheimia fascipennis (Smith and Janzen 2003b[1]). This sawfly did not spin a cocoon, but rather pupated naked in the leaf litter.
