Diagnosis

Apterae 3–4.5 mm, fairly similar to C. pini   but much denser and longer pubescent. Hairs on abdomen 0.1–0.2 mm, 40–50 present between the siphuncular sclerites. A transverse dull brown to black sclerite between the siphuncular cones and extending forwards along the spinal and pleural areas present, at least (always?) in the ovipara. Compare the short-haired C. nigritergi   below. Holocyclic, monoecious on Pinus   , forming colonies on old branches. Probably attended by ants.
