Aulacorthum aegopodii Börner 1939 —new status

This aphid has previously been treated as a subspecies of Aulacorthum solani . It is found on Aegopodium podagraria in Europe ( Netherlands, Germany), has a distinctive appearance in life (opaque creamy white with yellow spots at bases of the siphunculi), and has a monoecious life cycle on A. podagraria . In laboratory experiments it did not hybridise readily with A. solani ( Müller 1976) . Four alatae of in the BMNH collection have only 4–8 rhinaria on the third antennal segment, whereas the range for A. solani is 8–18, mostly (167 out of 188 specimens examined) 9–15. We accordingly give this taxon full species status.
