Comments.

Adialytus salicaphis   differs from other congeners in having very elongated first metasomal tergite (petiole) (Fig 5D), and short and dense marginal setae of the fore wing (Fig 3D). It can also be differentiated from Adialytus arvicola   by the number of longitudinal placodes on flagellomere 1 (3-5 in Adialytus salicaphis   vs. 0-1 in Adialytus arvicola   ). The specimens of Adialytus salicaphis   associated with Salix   spp., especially those reared from Chaitophorus salijaponicus niger   on Salix alba   , were slightly different from the specimens that reared from Chaitophorus   spp. on Populus   . The major differences were the lesser number of setae on the clypeus (4-5 vs. 8-10), lesser longitudinal placodes on the first flagellomere (1-2 vs. 3-5) and predominantly adpressed and short setae on the flagellomeres and hind femur compared with the long semi-erect to erect setae among the short setae in specimens from Populus   .
