scientific name

Uroleucon (Uromelan) adenophoricola Holman 1975
status

 

Uroleucon (Uromelan) adenophoricola Holman 1975 = Uroleucon (Uromelan) adenophorae (Matsumura 1918) , but Uroleucon (Uromelan) triphyllae Miyazaki 1966 is a valid species

Miyazaki described Uroleucon triphyllae from A. triphylla japonica in Japan, but subsequently synonymised his species with adenophorae Matsumura , although pointing out differences from Matsumura’s description. Holman, in describing U. adenophoricola as a new species, accepted this synonymy. From examination of paratypes and other material from Holman and Miyazaki in the BMNH collection it is clear that adenophoricola is the Matsumura species, and that U. triphyllae Miyazaki should be reinstated as a valid species.
