Diagnosis

Diagnosis based on Danielsson (1990b). Apterae globular to ovoid, 0.9–1.5 mm, grey, covered in white wax. In many respects resembling Pachypappella lactea  , but readily distinguished by the remarkably thickened hind femora. Antennae 5-segmented. Dioecious, alternating between Populus tremula  ( Salicaceae  ) and juniper Juniperus communis  ( Cupressaceae  ), where the aphids live in wax nests similar to those of P. lactea  , and commonly overwinter there ( Danielsson 1990b).
