Material examined. South Korea: 1 ♂, 1 ♀, identified as Psylla abieti  , JJ, Mt. Hanlasan, 22.vii.1981 (Y. J. Kwon) ( NHMBAbout NHMB)  .— South Korea (GB, GG, GN, GW, JB, JJ, JN) ( NHMBAbout NHMB, NIBRAbout NIBR, SNUAbout SNU)  .

Host plant. Acer pseudosieboldiani (Pax) Kom., A. pictum Thunb. var. mono (Maxim.) Maxim.  ( Sapindaceae  ), confirmed by the presence of immatures.

Comments. Among the East Asian Cacopsylla  species associated with Acer  spp. ( Sapindaceae  ) (Konovalova & Loginova 1985; Park & Lee 1992), two species, i.e. C. abieti  and C. pseudosieboldiani  , are characterised by massive, apically truncate genal processes and by relatively broad, yellow to ochreous forewings, lacking a dark pattern except for the dark claval apex and bearing very dense surface spinules, covering the entire wing membrane. The paramere of C. abieti  is broad subapically, that of C. pseudosieboldiani  slender. Psylla koreana Park (1992)  and Cacopsylla sieboldiana Li (2011)  display these head and forewing characters and, in particular the apically slender paramere, suggesting that they are conspecific with C. pseudosieboldiani  . For this reason, we synonymise them. We have examined specimens from JJ identified by Y. J. Kwon as P. abieti  that are C. pseudosieboldiani  . Judging from his description, it appears that the specimens treated by Kwon (1983) under P. abieti  are a mix of C. albopontis  and C. pseudosieboldiani  .
