Appendix A. Details of the taxa studied.

Table A1. Details of the taxa studied. For each taxon, we report its systematic position (column ‘Order: Family’), Latin binomial (column ‘Genus:Species’), species-specific acronym used in text and figures (column ‘Abbreviation’), feeding guild (column ‘Guild’), whether or not the taxon, based on its life cycle, was successfully removed from the set of ‘Extinction trees’ (column ‘Removal on extinction trees’; see main text, section Extinction experiment, for details), and the number of generations per year (column ‘Voltinism’). Column ‘Prior (log density per leaf)’ shows the prior densities () used in the metacommunity model (see main text, section Metacommunity model, for details).

a In the study area, all species feed exclusively on the oak Quercus robur (but note that the adults of Trioza remota hibernate on conifers; Ossiannilsson 1992).

b Guilds were abbreviated as follows: Leaf miner – L, Galler – G and Other – O. The guild ‘Other’ consists of four species that cannot be easily classified as galler or leaf miner: Asterolecanium variolosum, a scale insect; Heliozela sericiella, which combines petiole galling in the early larval stages with leaf mining in the final instar; Bucculatrix ulmella, which combines leaf mining in the early instars with free-feeding in later instars; Ancylis mitterbacheriana, a leaf folder.

c Prior densities were based on a survey of leaf miners and gallers in the Turku archipelago in 2001 (T. Roslin, unpublished data; for a general description of the sampling design, see Roslin et al. 2006).

d These congeneric species cannot be easily and consistently identified in the field based on the morphology of the mine, and will therefore be treated as a compound group.
