Cacopsylla satsumensis (Kuwayama, 1908) 

( Fig. 53View FIGURES 53 ‒ 60)

Psylla satsumensis  KUWAYAMA, 1908: 177.

Cacopsylla satsumensis  ; INOUE, 2010: 352.

Psylla (Hepatopsylla) truncaticephala  KWON, 1983: 70, syn. nov. Cacopsylla truncaticephala  ; PARK, 1996: 272.

Material examined. 1 ♂, 1 ♀ paratypes of Psylla (Hetatopsylla) truncaticephala  , JN, Hongdo Island, 11.viii.1981 (Y. J. Kwon) ( NHMBAbout NHMB)  .— South Korea (JJ, JN) ( NHMBAbout NHMB, SNUAbout SNU)  , Japan ( SNUAbout SNU)  .

Host plant. Rhaphiolepis indica  (L.) Lindley ( Rosaceae  ), confirmed by the presence of immatures.

Comments. The comparison of paratypes of P. truncaticephala  with specimens of C. satsumensis  from Japan shows that they are conspecific, sharing the brown cloudy pattern in the apical half of the forewing and the host plant Rhaphiolepis indica  (L.) Lindl. ( Rosaceae  ), not Camellia japonica  as suggested by Kwon (1983). For this reason, we synonymise the two taxa here.
