apterae

gall

aphids in the underside of leaves, without causing them to curl (but see note below).

primary hostplants

Rosacae, monophagous

Prunus domestica, dulcis, spinosa

notes

according to Blackman & Eastop lives the species primarily on Prunus domestica, rarely on other Prunus species, natably P. dulcis. Apparently sloe is an exceptional host plant. This perhaps explains the discrepancy between their observation that no leaf curling does take place, and the picture above.
