gallaepomiformis  misident.

Notes

This species has hitherto been known as S. gallaepomiformis  in Britain but it was shown in Pujade-Villar (2005) that this name refers to another species (of Saphonecrus  ) and the widespread species should be called facialis  . Melika (2006a) proposed that gallaepomiformis  (Boyer de Fonscolombe, 1832, Diplolepis  ) should be retained as the valid name but did not make an application to ICZN to overturn the type designation of gallaepomiformis  .
