Uroleucon altaicum Szelegiewicz 1982


Uroleucon altaicum Szelegiewicz 1982  = Uroleucon mulgedii (Nevsky 1928) 

Nevsky described U. mulgedii  from Uzbekistan, and it is since recorded from Ukraine ( Bozhko 1976) and Bulgaria ( Tashev 1967, as Macrosiphum mulgedifolii  ). Szelegiewicz described U. altaicum  from Cichorium intybus  in Mongolia. His description agrees very closely with the redescription of Nevsky’s species by Holman (1991).
