Greenidea Schouteden


Genus Greenidea Schouteden  

Remarks: An exclusion from the list is Greenidea (Trichosiphon) psidii van der Goot. There   are a series of slides for this species (originally recorded as Greenidea formosana   ), from a single collection instance in Queensland, containing an alate ovipara, and an aptera with no host records. The aptera   is unfortunately missing siphunculi, as they commonly detach when slide mounting this genus, and without which a definite identification is impossible. Halbert (2004) notes having a slide mounted specimen that is likely this species from Brisbane, but as yet it remains absent from Australian institutions. Further collecting and slide mounting is therefore needed to prove the species is present on the continent with any certainty.
