Abstract
Evidence is presented that two species of parasitic Hymenoptera, Leptacis kivuensis and Synopeas sp., are vectors of the uredospores of the coffee leaf-rust fungus Hemileia vastatrix Berk. & Br. in Kenya. Their chief importance is probably in carrying the initial spore inoculum to new plantations remote from other coffee.
