Notes: From Pemphigus bursarius galls (29 June 06 [A]) on Lombardy Poplar (29 June 06 [B]).

Three intact galls and one cut in half (which had a larva in it) kept in a plastic box lined with kitchen paper. Dampened a couple of times. They went a bit mouldy but 2 females emerged (the second on 20 July 06).

Unfortunately only the males can be identified to species in this genus.
