Key to the apterous viviparous females of Macrosiphoniella  species living on Artemisia  ( Asteraceae  ) in Iran

The one new species and the previously described species of Macrosiphoniella  living on Artemisia  in Iran can be identified using the following key.

1. Abdominal tergites I –V with a pair of dark transverse bands, which are often fused in abdominal tergites IV & V; SIPH thick, about 2 x its basal width; ANTIII with 24–50 rhinaria in basal half .................. ............................................................................................................................ M. absinthii (Linnaeus) 

– Abdominal tergites without dark transverse bands; SIPH more than 2 x its basal width; ANTIII with less than 23 rhinaria ....................................................................................................................................... 2

2 (1). URS less than 0.8 2 HT; SIPH with a slight constriction, shorter than cauda; Cauda pale ........................ ................................................................................................................................. M. abrotani (Walker) 

– URS more than 0.8 2 HT, if shorter then basal part of SIPH broader; SIPH longer or shorter than cauda ................................................................................................................................................................. 3
