Sogatella nigeriensis (Muir, 1920) 

Megamelus nigeriensis Muir, 1920: 140  ; Asche and Wilson, 1990: 13

Distribution. Occurs in Palaearctic and Afrotropical regions. MADEIRA: locality unknown ( Asche and Wilson, 1990). The material of Sogatella vibix  and S. furcifera  studied by Lindberg (1961) and deposited in the British Museum, was identified by Asche and Wilson (1990) as S. nigeriensis  . Remarks. All material of Sogatella furcifera (Horváth, 1889)  from Madeira reported by China (1938) and Lindberg (1961) and that of Sogatella vibix (Haupt, 1927)  reported by Lindberg (1961) could correspond either to S. nigeriensis  or S. kolophon Kirkaldy, 1906  (see Asche and Wilson, 1990). The presence of S. kolophon  should be further confirmed.
