status

 

Aphis (Protaphis) striata (Hille Ris Lambers 1967)  = Aphis (Protaphis) picridicola Holman 1966 

These three descriptions, of an Aphis  ( Protaphis  ) species on basal parts of composite plants in former Czechoslovakia, Italy and Germany respectively, were published in close succession. The BMNH collection has paratypes of all three and they are clearly all the same species. All three descriptions include apterous viviparae and oviparae. Holman and Müller both described the apterous males. This aphid lives in ant­attended colonies on the roots and at bases of radical leaves of a closely­related group of plant genera; Picris  , Hypochaeris  and Leontodon  ( Hypochaeridinae  ).
