Phyllocolpa leucapsis (Tischbein, 1846)


Phyllocolpa leucapsis (Tischbein, 1846) 

Nematus leucapsis  Tischbein, 1846

Nematus coriacea  (Benson, 1953, Nematus  )


England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland


According to Kopelke (2007c) Phyllocolpa coriacea  is a synonym of Phyllocolpa leucapsis  (as stated in the abstract and table 1, whereas the synonymy with Phyllocolpa alienata  on p. 153 is wrong; J.-P. Kopelke, pers. comm.). The concept of Phyllocolpa leucapsis  in Kopelke (2007c) is different to that of Benson (1958) and most other previous taxonomists.
