status

 

Metopolophium rubifoliae Raychaudhuri, Ghosh & Basu 1978   to Acyrthosiphon  

Although Acyrthosiphon   and Metopolophium   are not very well­defined genera, the long antennal processus terminalis and long ultimate rostral segment, as well as the association with Rubus   , suggest that this species is more appropriately placed in Acyrthosiphon   .
