same galls, underside


Larva white, solitary, in a drop of liquid, in a single generation per year (may); hibernation as larva in the soil. Vacated galls turn brown and dry and fall out of the leaf.


Sapindaceae, monophagous

Acer monspessulanum, opalus & subsp. obtusatum, platanoides, pseudoplatanus.

Gagné only refers to A. pseudoplatanus, which indeed seems the most importnt hostplant.
