gall

Apterae 1-3 mm, black. In spring they cause strongly bunched leaves; later they are distributed more evenly over the plants. Immatures strongly resemble those of Aphis fabae.

host plants

Apiaceae, monophagous

Aegopodium podagraria.

notes

On this host plant also the omnipresent Aphis fabae may occur. Contrary to podagrariae, fabae has a strong preference for the inflorescence.
