Leucopis ballestrerii Rondani, 1875  

ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION: 1875a: 263 (key), 267 (description).

TYPE LOCALITY: Rondani gave no type locality in his original description but presumably it is Palermo because he received the specimens from Ballestrero who lived in Palermo [Sicily ( Italy)]   .

TYPE MATERIAL: 1 ♀, lectotype (dissected) ( MZUF: Box 35): Leucopis Mgn   / ballestrerii Rnd.   / 1821 / Lectotypus Leucopis   ? (Leucopomyia) ballestrerii Rond.   , Ex. 20, det. G. Morge, Ex. 20 [not designated] / Lectotypus ♀ Leucopomyia ballestrerii   (Rondani, 1874 [sic!]), A. Raspi det. / Leucopomyia silesiaca (Egger, 1862)   , A. Raspi det.

PARALECTOTYPE EXAMINED: 1 ♀ ( MZUF: Box 35): Leucopis Mgn   / ballestrerii Rnd.   / 1821 / Syntypus Leucopis   ? (Leucopomyia) ballestrerii Rond.   , Ex. 21, det. G. Morge, Ex. 21 / Paralectotypus ♀ Leucopomyia ballestrerii   (Rondani, 1874 [sic!]), A. Raspi det. / Leucopomyia silesiaca (Egger, 1862)   , A. Raspi det.

CURRENT STATUS: valid species ( Tanasijtshuk 1984: 226, Nartshuk et al. 1995: 7); junior synonym of Leucopomyia silesiaca (Egger, 1862) ( Raspi & Benelli 2016: 214)   .

REMARKS: Rondani first named (1874c: 132) and then described Leucopis ballestrerii   (1875a: 267) from more than one specimen: “ Exemplaria aliqua inveni inter Pemphigos cornicularios Pass. gallas …, a March. Ballestrero panormitano mihi transmissa [I found some specimens in gals of Pemphigos corniculario Pass. …, received from Marq. Ballestrero from Palermo]”. Raspi & Benelli (2016: 214) designated a lectotype (♀) and paralectotype (♀)   .
