status

 

Aphalara maculipennis Löw, 1886 

Distribution. India: Jammu and Kashmir ( Burckhardt & Lauterer 1997), Uttarakhand ( Heslop-Harrison 1946, as A. calthae  ; Mathur 1975).

Host plant. Persicaria hydropiper  ( Polygonaceae  ).

Comments. According to Mathur (1975: 31, comment by F. Ossiannilsson) and ( Burckhardt & Lauterer 1997: 291) the Indian populations identified as Aphalara maculipennis  may not be conspecific with European A. maculipennis  . We examined one female from Kashmir (BMNH) which looks, however, like European specimens. More material is required to solve this question.
