Prociphilus fraxini (Fabricius, 1777) 

Diagnosis

Diagnosis based on Heie (2004). Apterae 1.8–2.7 mm, pale, wax-covered. Very similar to P. bumeliae  , but the posterior wax gland plates on head weakly developed, sometimes absent. Dioecious, alternating between Fraxinus excelsior  ( Oleaceae  ) and roots of Abies ( Pinaceae  ), where wax-covered colonies are formed.
