Cyrtomyzus pedicularis Gredina 1995


Cyrtomyzus pedicularis Gredina 1995   = Myzus (Prunomyzus) padellus Hille Ris Lambers & Rogerson, 1946  

The description of C. pedicularis   , from Pedicularis   resupinata L. in the Russian Far East, agrees well with small specimens of Myzus padellus   , which mostly host¬≠alternates between Prunus   and Galeopsis   but also occurs in summer on Pedicularis   and Rhinanthus   ( Scrophulariaceae   ), and is already known from Korea as well as Europe and west Siberia. Cyrtomyzus   was distinguished from Myzus   by having a gibbous genital plate, but this is also a feature of M. padellus   .
