Xylococcus filiferus Löw, 1883
infection of a Tilia-branch (from Löw).
The adult females are pear-shaped and lack feet, eyes and antennae. They lay embedded in the bark, mostly in the axil of a branch. Posteriorly they bear a long, wavy, hollow thread-like appendage at the tip of which droplets of honeydew are exuded.
