scientific name

Epiacizzia neolitseae ( Miyatake, 1981 )
status

comb. nov.

Epiacizzia neolitseae ( Miyatake, 1981)  , comb. nov.

Distribution. Nepal ( Miyatake 1981, as Psylla neolitseae  ).

Host plant. Neolitsea  sp. ( Lauraceae  ).

Comments. Psylla neolitseae Miyatake, 1981  closely resembles Psylla kuwayamai Crawford, 1911  in the structure of the head, the hind legs, the forewings and the terminalia  suggesting the two are congeneric. The latter was transferred by Li (2011) to Epiacizzia  . Pending a revision of the generic limits in Macrocorsinae  we accept this change and propose following new combination: Epiacizzia neolitseae ( Miyatake, 1981)  , comb. nov. from Psylla  .
