Plant Parasites of Europe

leafminers, galls and fungi

Dasineura pseudococcus

Dasineura pseudococcus (Thomas, 1890)

on Salix


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.


Salicaceae, narrowly monophagous

Salix aurita, caprea, cinerea.


Rabdophaga pseudococcus.
