Rabdophaga exsiccans (Rübsaamen, 1916)
Under the bark of young twigs live a number of orange or red larvae; the branches are not or only weakly swollen. Before they pupate, the larvae make emergence openings. These “shot holes” are the clearest indication of their presence. Attacked shoots die off. Probably univoltine.
Salicaceae, narrowly monophagous
spatula (from Rübsaamen, 1916a)
