NORWICH: Lakenham way Large Willow Aphids

1st October 2019

There is a recently arrived micro moth that causes leaf mines on long-leaved willows (Royal Midget), so accordingly I have been paying extra attention to any willows that I see as I move around the city. No luck so far, but I did find a colony of Large Willow Aphids (Tuberolachnus salignus), which are rather impressive as far as aphids go.
