status

 

Aphis pulsatillae Ossiannilsson 1959   = Aphis montanicola Hille Ris Lambers 1950  

In the original description of montanicola   , the last rostral segment is erroneously described as shorter than the second segment of the hind tarsus, leading to pulsatillae   being described and recognised as a separate species. Comparison of type material of montanicola   and pulsatillae   in the BMNH collection failed to reveal any substantive differences.
