Hyalopterus pruni (Geoffroy, 1762)  

Published information. MP: without host plant ( Przhiboro, 1995).

Comments. At the current time there are morphological and molecular evidence of the existence of not two, as it was known before 2008, but three species of Hyalopterus   ( Lozier et al., 2008; Favret et al., 2017).

Since we do not have these samples at our disposal, we can not confirm that they belong to Hyalopterus pruni   .
