Diagnosis

Aptera 4.5–7 mm, black, semi-matt with glossy sclerites, legs and antennae partly brownish red. Holocyclic, monoecious on Picea  . Spruce and mixed forests. In dense colonies on stem and underside of branches, often high up in the trees, particularly on twigs with developing cones. Often also on young solitary spruces. Usually ant-attended. Moves restlessly around when disturbed and often falls to the ground where it may move to exposed roots.

Recorded hosts

Pinaceae  : Picea abies  *, glauca  , omorika  , orientalis  , pungens  , sitchensis  , tianschanica  , spp. (Due to the agility of C. piceae  and the similarity between C. piceae  and C. curvipes  , I suggest that records from Abies  and other genera should be confirmed.)

Recorded attendant ants

Formicinae  : Camponotus herculeanus  *; Formica polyctena  *, truncorum  *; Lasius niger  *.
