This Bulletin contains Field keys and morphological keys with descriptions and illustrations for the identifications of the 27 aphids of the family Lachnidae known to occur on conifers in Britain. The strong influence of their host plant upon these insects and the impact some of them have on the growth of forest trees and amenity plantations throughout the world is discussed. The importance of conifer aphid honeydew from various species in the production of forest honey is reviewed. Accounts of each species include recent synonymy, descriptions of morphs, type of life cycle, host plants, distribution and economic importance.
