Rabdophaga ?jaapi



Photographs on Salix repens, Creeping Willow

Specimens of both lateral and terminal galls were sent to Dr. Keith Harris. Larvae from the lateral galls did not have a sternal spatula and the terminal galls (sent two weeks later) did not contain larvae. Therefore identification is tentative at present
