Viburnum opulus, Nieuwendam

gall

host plants

Adoxaceae, monophagous

Viburnum carlesii, cotinifolium, dilatatum, lantana, opulus, rhytidophyllum, tinus.

V. opulus is the main host plant by far.
The association of this species with Actaea spicata by Houard must stem from confusion with Aphis fabae.
