Aphis pulsatillae Ossiannilsson 1959  = Aphis montanicola Hille Ris Lambers 1950 

In the original description of montanicola  , the last rostral segment is erroneously described as shorter than the second segment of the hind tarsus, leading to pulsatillae  being described and recognised as a separate species. Comparison of type material of montanicola  and pulsatillae  in the BMNH collection failed to reveal any substantive differences.
