The saliva they produce is phytotoxic and leads to necrosis in the phloem which subsequently results in the twig withering see pictures below. In the genus Cupressus, the most tolerant species were Cupressus torulosa, Cupressus funebris and Cupressus arizonica, whereas the most susceptible were Cupressus benthamii [Cupressus lusitanica var.


However, Kairo and Murphy found that the development threshold was as low as 0. Delfino MA; Binazzi A, The rostrum is relatively short, although that of the fourth instar nymph first image below is longer in relation to body length than that of the adult.

Similarly Pauesia juniperorum has been used in Chile. Ten families were recommended for use in breeding, to widen the genetic base of future forests in the region Mugasha et al. These observations should be repeated in younger trees and in different areas. Lachnidae when bred under laboratory condition.

How does it spread? Loss of these plantations could have serious effects on Kenya’s domestic wood supply. Agarwala and Raychaudhuri, The distribution map includes records based on specimens of C.
