G. Morge, Ex. 2 / Hiervon Genit. [genitalia of this specimen] Prep. N. 2.

SLIDE: Genitalia on slide ( MZUB: Box 329): Leucopis (Leucopis) aphidiperda Rondani   , Lectotypus ♂, Parma, Ex. 1, G. Morge Prep. n. 4 / Männlicher Genitalapparat in Duronbalsam [male genitalia in Duronbalsam] XI.1960, Istituto di Zoologia Bologna ( Italia), G. Morge   .

REMARKS: Rondani (1848a: 435) described Leucopis aphidiperda   without specifying the number   , the sex or the length of the specimens. Morge (1962b: 436) designated a lectotype (♂) but did not mention an additional male and female in the MZUF (both of these additional specimens are paralectotypes). The MZUF specimens of Leucopis aphidiperda   and Leucopis aphidivora   are both numbered “1812”.
