Chermes taxi Buckton, 1886
Taxus baccata, gall (from Buckton, 1886a)
The individual galls are juicy, the wall consists of alternating layers of bright green and pink woody material.
The interpretation of this species is a mystery. The species is not mentioned in Blackman & Eastop, the Aphid Species File, or ScaleNet (2018). Although described from the UK, it seems never to have been found again.
