Plane Lace Bug

Scientific name: Corythuca ciliata
Affected plant: Principally species of the genre Plane, although sporadically, in case of serious infestations, it has been found in species of other genres such as Fraxinus, Tilia or Acer.

The Tiger is a pest that comes from the USA and was detected for the first time in the peninsula in the plane of the Parc de la Devesa, Girona, in 1979; since then , it has progressively spread to the rest of the peninsula, settling here completely.
It is a sucking insect that feeds on the sap of the leaves leaving in them yellow spots; the cause is on the underside of the leaf. The most characteristic symptom is the discoloration of the leaves, beginning in the intersection of the secondary ribs with the main one until the leaf is completely yellow. In strong attacks, it causes a premature defoliation of the tree, which becomes leafless by late summer.
This pest causes three types of damages:
- it affects the vigour of the tree, due to the decrease in its photosynthetic capacity.
- Visual and environmental, due to the unsightly look of the trees and the nuisance they represent for adults in urban areas.
- They are vectors of viruses and other plane diseases.
