scientific name

Stenopsylla curta ( Mathur, 1975 )
status

 

Stenopsylla curta ( Mathur, 1975)  , stat. and comb. nov.

Distribution. India: Meghalaya ( Lahiri & Biswas 1979, as Trioza gigantea curta  ), Tamil Nadu ( Raman & Kandasamy 1978, as Trioza  sp.; Kandasamy 1980, 1986, as Trioza gigantea curta  ), West Bengal ( Mathur 1975, as Trioza gigantea curta  ).

Host plant. Symplocos cochinchinensis var. laurina  ( Symplocaceae  ). According to Lahiri & Biswas (1979) on Schima wallichii  ( Theaceae  ) which is an unlikely host.

Comments. T. gigantea ssp. curta  differs considerably from the nominal species suggesting they are two distinct species. The following nomenclatorial changes are proposed here: Stenopsylla curta ( Mathur, 1975)  , stat. and comb. nov. from Trioza  . The record of Trioza gigantea curta  from Meghalaya on Schima wallichii  by Lahiri & Biswas (1979) is possibly a misidentification.
