Diagnosis

Apterae about 2.9 mm, covered with wax wool. Two pairs of wax gland plates on head, of which the posterior ones better developed than the anterior. A narrow pale subapical zone on RIV+V present. Diagnosis based on Heie (2004). Holocyclic and dioecious, alternating between ash Fraxinus excelsior   (sometimes other Oleaceae   such as Ligustrum   and Syringa   ) and Abies   , where it feeds in wax-covered colonies on the roots. Not ant-attended.

Recorded secondary hosts

Pinaceae   : Abies alba   , veitchii   , spp.
