Mite (Lacebark Gall mite) Eriophyes hoheriae
Species: E. hoheriae
Scientific name: Eriophyes hoheriae
Common name: Lacebark Gall Mite,
Houhere (Lacewood) can be heavily infested by stem galls caused by a mite (Eriophyes hoheriae). Galls are typically rough-surfaced spheres of 1-2 cm on small stems and twigs and apparently cause little harm. The galls are food for the young.
