notes

The gall occurs in two forms: as tiny, low pimples, and as somewhat larger, clearly stalked, dimples (lower two pictures). The first form has been described as Aceria ulmicola, the second as Aceria brevipunctata.

synonyms

Aceria brevipunctata (Nalepa, 1889); A. ulmi Nalepa 1890 nec (Garman, 1883); A. ulmicola Nalepa, 1909; Eriophyes ulmi.

This synonymy, bassed on the Fauna Europaea (2014), is controversial. Skoracka ao (2005a) recognise two species: campestricola (= ulmicola) and brevipuncta.
