Pineus cembrae (Cholodkovsky, 1888)
on Picea, primary host plant
Picea abies (from Houard, 1908a)
The gall somewhat resembles an ananas gall, but the structure is much less compact because the needles are broadened and swollen at the base, but not fused; the gall is about 3 times longer than wide. The gall is 4-5 cm long, needles protruding to two sides. Aphids dark red with abundant wax.
Picea abies, glehnii, jezoensis, koraiensis, orientalis.
on Pinus, secondary host plant
The aphids overwinter mainly near ends of twigs at the bases of last year’s needles, giving rise the following year to one or two generations of apterae living in dense wax-wool on new shoots.
