This species has been recorded in Northern Provinces of Iran from Alnus  sp., Carpinus betulus  ( Betulaceae  ), Fagus orientalis  ( Fagaceae  ), Juglans regia  ( Juglandaceae  ), Pyrus communis  ( Rosaceae  ) ( Modarres Awal 1997 as Taphrorynchus [sic] alni  ). Elsewhere the species has been recorded only from Alnus glutinosa  ( Betulaceae  ) ( Pfeffer 1995). The range of hosts given suggests that the species has been misidentified.
