Life cycles

Monoecious holocyclic.

Host plants

Quercus spp and more particularly Quercus robur, pedunculate oak

 

Particular characteristics

Tuberculatus borealis colonizes the underside of leaves of pedunculate oak. As it lives on the same host as T. annulatus, it can easily be confused with that highly common species.
The individuals form small scattered colonies. The sexual forms appear in the autumn.

Agranomic impact
