Coccoidea - Pineus strobi

Coccoidea - Pineus strobi
100 Acre Wood, Winneshiek County, Iowa, USA
April 28, 2010
On trunks of pine trees. At first I walked right by these without thinking but looking closer I saw that they looked like teeny cotton fluffs. I squished a couple and yes, there was some color. I collected a few to put under the scope.
