Comments. Judging from the original description, Leprostictopsylla jiuzhaiensis Li, 2011  , is congeneric with Aphorma indica  , making Leprostictopsylla  a junior synonym of Aphorma  . For this reason we synonymise the two genera and transfer one species as follows. Aphorma Hodkinson, 1974  , type-species Aphalara bagnalli Hodkinson, 1974  , by original designation and monotypy = Leprostictopsylla Li, 2011  , type-species Leprostictopsylla jiuzhaiensis Li, 2011  , by original designation and monotypy, syn. nov. Aphorma jiuzhaiensis ( Li, 2011)  , comb. nov. from Leprostictopsylla  .
