Trioza pitformis Mathur, 1975 

Distribution. India: Uttarakhand ( Mathur 1975), West Bengal ( Mani 1948, 1973, as Phylloplecta  sp.).

Host plant. Mallotus philippensis  ( Euphorbiaceae  ).

Comments. Mani (1948: 79) suggested that his Phylloplecta  sp. 1 ‘is probably Megatrioza pallida Uichanco  … described as causing small pit galls on the under side of leaves of M. philippinensis  … in Philippines, Java, Sumatra and Salajar group of Islands’. T. pallida  and T. pitformis  are morphologically similar but, according to the description of Uichanco (1919, 1921), the former is larger with wider forewings.
