Importance and distribution in Luxembourg

Although Pulvinaria regalis is considered to be widespread in Luxembourg there are no occurrences documented in the Recorder database.

Pulvinaria regalis is not generally regarded as a damaging pest. It usually feeds on trees that can easily withstand the sap loss. There have, however, been records of this species causing the death of a host plant, where young and stressed plants seem most at risk.

Risk assessment

ISEIA protocol: C3 (3+1+2+1) (Ries et al. 2017: 69).
