Apterae 2.5–3.5 mm, shiny dark brown to black with a metallic lustre, which especially in juveniles can be very conspicuous. Head, thorax and venter with a fairly thick grey wax dusting. A spinal wax streak, spreading along the segment borders is usually present, and adult apterae often with rounded presiphuncular wax patches. Legs and antennae predominantly dark brown to black. Abdominal hairs long, erect, most of them not originating from sclerites. Hairs on femora rather short, erect or semierect, those on tibiae short, oblique. Holocyclic, monoecious on Pinus   . Found in forest margins, pine plantations, sea shore dunes etc. Forming small colonies on current year’s shoots, rarely on older. Usually on small pines. Often ant-attended.
