status

 

Sportaphis sporta Zhang, Chen, Zhong & Li  , in Zhang 1999 = Tenuilongiaphis stata Zhang  , in Zhang & Zhong 1993

The type of Sportaphis sporta  , described from an unidentified shrub in north­west China, appears to be the fundatrix of Tenuilongiaphis stata  , described from apterae on Artemisia  . Autumn forms of this species on Hippophae  were described as Ceruraphis hippophaetrophis  (q.v.), so it is likely that the unidentified shrub was Hippophae  .
