Description: Monthly samples of the hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA), Adelges tsugae, and predatory beetles were taken from Tsuga sieboldii near the border of Osaka and Kyoto prefectures. The beetles were collected by sweeping the canopy up to 5 meters height with nets. The phenology of HWA life stages were monitored by collecting branches and determining, under the microscope, the number of each stage of HWA present per cm twig length. The phenology of HWA on the hemlock appears to be similar to that observed in the eastern United States. Predacious beetles present included many generalist species, especially in the spring months.

Keywords: Adelges tsugae, Japan, Laricobius new species, Sasajiscymnus tsugae, seasonal history
