Metopolophium sonchifoliae Raychaudhuri, L.K. Ghosh & Das 1980  = Acyrthosiphon rubi Narzikulov 1957 

The description of Metopolophium sonchifoliae  , collected on Sonchus  sp. and undetermined Rosaceae  in Himachal Pradash, India, does not distinguish it from A. rubi  , and it was subsequently recorded from a more likely host, Rubus ulmifolius  , with an appropriate chromosome number for an Acyrthosiphon  , 2 n= 10 ( Pal & Khuda­Bukhsh, 1982).
