The black willow aphid Pterocomma salicis is recorded from Norway for the first time. Acolony was photographed and 45 specimens were collected 12 June 2004 in Folldal municipality, Hedmark (HEN). The locality is situated close to the southern shore ofthe river Folia, right north of Solvang (EIS 71), approximately 890 m altitude. The colony was found on 2-3 year old twigs of Salix glauca, which seems to be a new foodplant for the species.
