status

 

Metopolophium graminum Raychaudhuri, L.K. Ghosh & Das 1980   = Metopolophium chandrani David & Narayanan 1968  

The description of M. graminum   from unidentified Gramineae   in Himachal Pradesh, India does not provide any characters to differentiate it from M. chandrani   , described earlier from grasses in the same state. As both descriptions are of apterae with an unusually high number of rhinaria on antennal segment III, it is extremely likely that they are conspecific.
