Aphis verbenae Nevsky, 1929  , nec. Macchiati, 1883 = Aphis mamonthovae Davletshina 1964 

A. verbenae Nevsky  is a junior homonym of A. verbenae Macchiati 1883  , which is probably Brachycaudus helichrysi (Kaltenbach)  . A. mamonthovae Davletshina  is given as a possible synonym in Remaudière and Remaudière (1997), and we here adopt this name as the valid one for the species. It is closely related to the A. frangulae  group, and European records of frangulae  from Verbena  are probably referable to this species, which is also recorded from N Africa ( Ethiopia), Middle East ( Lebanon, Turkey), C Asia and N India ( BMNH collection, leg. S.S. Sekhon).
