Notes

Three morphologically well distinguished Phyllocolpa  species feed on Salix viminalis  in Europe ( Vikberg 2010a). Benson (1958) had already distinguished these under the names Phyllocolpa piliserra  , Phyllocolpa scotaspis  and Phyllocolpa anglica  . Kopelke (2007b) stated that only two European species occur on this host, and synonymised Nematus anglicus  and Nematus nigrolineatus  with Phyllocolpa scotaspis  , thus leaving the taxon formerly referred to as Phyllocolpa anglica  without a valid name. The opinions of Benson and Vikberg are followed here.
