This species is yellowish-green in colour. It was reported from Lebanon on Prunus sp.   Also reported on 40 host plants from 27 countries in two major regions of Nearctic and Palearctic ( Migeon and Dorkeld, 2006 -2016). This species is reported from Syria on Ostrya carpinifolia   , as reported from France and Italy ( Duso et al., 2004; Migeon et al., 2007). This species causes serious damage to leaves of Ostrya carpinifolia   due to feeding by large number of individuals.
