parasiet

Apterae 2-3 mm, relatively long-hairy and with short siphunculi. In large colonies at the underside of the leaves, intensively visited by ants. This is the only species that does not have an aestivating form; in the high summer many minute individuals are born, but these do not enter diapause.

hostplants

Sapindaceae, monophagous

Acer platanoides.

Also, but much less frequently, A. campestre, pseudoplatanus, saccharinum, and Xanthoceras sorbifolium.

synonyms
