Dasineura clausilia

Dasineura clausilia (Bremi, 1847)

on Salix


The description if this species is so imcomplete that in fact it is unrecognisable; apparently there is no type material left (Gagné). Probably it is some predator or inquiline of a Rabdophaga, possibly even a gall mite.


Salicacae, monophagous

Salix alba, caprea, daphnoides, elaeagnos, purpurea.


Rabdophaga clausilia; Rabdophaga inchbaldiana (Mik, 1886).
