Neomyzus van der Goot reinstated as full genus

This group of about nine Asian species with distinctive black dorsal markings has been placed as a subgenus of Aulacorthum , but differs from Aulacorthum in several morphological features (shape of head, number of accessory hairs on the fourth rostral segment, immatures with spinulose hind tibiae) that place it closer to the Myzus group of genera. It includes the worldwide pest aphid Neomyzus circumflexus .
