status

comb. nov.

Toonapsylla cedrelae ( Kieffer, 1905)  , comb. nov.

Psylla shevoroyensis Kandasamy, 1986  , syn. nov.

Distribution. India: Tamil Nadu ( Kandasamy 1986, as Psylla shevoroyensis  ), West Bengal ( Kieffer 1905, as Psylla cedrelae  ; Mathur 1975, as Psylla cedrelae  ), Uttarakhand ( Mathur 1975, as Psylla cedrelae  ).

Host plant. Toona ciliata  ( Meliaceae  ); the host record of Chukrasia tabularis  ( Meliaceae  ) by Mathur (1975) is doubtful and needs confirmation.

Comments. Specimens with the same data as the types of Psylla shevoroyensis Kandasamy, 1986  , which were examined (BMNH), show no difference to T. cedrelae  , and the two nominal species are formally synonymised here: Toonapsylla cedrelae ( Kieffer, 1905)  = Psylla shevoroyensis Kandasamy, 1986  , syn. nov.
