Dasineura pseudococcus (Thomas, 1890)

on Salix

gall

Larve in the parenchyma of the leaf, in the vein axils. They are gregarious, white or pale orange. Their presence does not induce galling, but it does initiate a premature discolouring of the infested part of the leaf. They hibernate still in the fallen leaf, pupate in spring.
