Macrosiphoniella sensorinuda Zhang 1992  = Macrosiphoniella lijiangensis Zhang 1992 

M. sensorinuda  is described in the same paper and from the same host ( Artemisia vulgaris  L.) as M. lijiangensis  , and is distinguished as having shorter siphunculi and cauda. We have examined paratypes of both species, and conclude that there must have been an error in measuring these characters in the description of M. sensorinuda  , and that it is a synonym of M. lijiangensis  , which has page priority.
