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  .
