This is a first report of an undescribed ehermid of the genus pineus attacking both the bole and branches of Abies amabilis and A. gramlis with little apparent damage. It also distinguishes this insect from an apparently similar balsam woolly aphid (Chermes piceae Ratz.) that severely damages these same true firs. Pinells first instar larvae when settled on bark secrete long, irregular wax threads but retain activity up to molting, and in crowns does not cause galling of branch tips. Chermes with short, regular wax ribbons ribbons inactive, and causes "gouting" of branch tips.
