Abstract

Research conducted during the growing season 2012. has shown there are 10 alien phytophagous species on woody plants in park Maksimir. These are the following: leaf blotch miner moth (Phyllonorycter platani), sycamore lace bug (Corythuca ciliata), horse chestnut leafminer (Cameraria ohridella), east asian sawfly (Aproceros leucopoda), lime leaf miner (Phyllonorycter issikii), black locust leaf miner (Phyllonorycter robiniella), locust digitate leaf miner (Parectopa robiniella), black locust gall midge (Obolodiplosis robiniae), citrus flatid planthopper (Metcalfa pruinosa) and oriental chestnut gall wasp (Dryocosmus kuriphylus). Basic features of the recorded species which are presented in this paper are taken from the literature. Paper also presents data on development cycles and biology of all species except sycamore lace bug and chestnut gall wasp, and calculations for the intensity of attacks for leaf miners. Currently, any of recorded species does not cause significant damage to trees in park Maksmir. Given the particular vulnerability of urban areas to the entry and spread of alien species we should pay particular attention to that issue in the park Maksimir.
