Acizzia undetermined sp. 1
Single sample in BMNH, from “wattle” Acacia sp. in West Tai Mo Shan Country Park (NT).
Described from USA (California) but possibly introduced to there from the Oriental Region. Hosts were given as Fatsia spp and Schefflera heptaphylla [= S. octophylla ] by Hodkinson (1986), who also reported its presence in HK. Reported on Schefflera heptaphylla [= S. octophylla ] from HK by Lee & Winney (1981). No HK material in BMNH.
Cacopsylla undetermined sp. 1 (Figs 35, 36)
Two adult males in BMNH, said to have been part of large colony on Rhaphiolepis indica . The authors subsequently collected a single adult female and a number of exuviae from the same host at the HK Wetland Centre (NT).
This species is represented in BMNH by two HK samples, from Phyllodium pulchellum at the old Tung Chung village (Lantau I.) and from P. elegans at Three Fathoms Cove (NT). Psylla hungtouensis had been placed under Colophorina in the BMNH collection, as a manuscript change resulting from unpublished work on the group by David Hollis (pers. comm.).
Colophorina -group, undetermined sp. 1
Single specimen in BMNH, from Dalbergia hupeana at Lam Tsuen Valley.
Colophorina -group, undetermined sp. 2
Ctenarytaina undetermined sp. 1
Single sample in BMNH, from Syzygium hancei at Tai Po Kau forest (NT).
Ctenarytaina undetermined sp. 2
Single sample in BMNH, from Syzygium sp. on HK Island. It is noted on two slides that this sample is not conspecific with sp.1 above.
Three samples, from Citrus sinensis and Citrus spp , are in BMNH dry collection, the oldest collected from “orange leaves” in July 1908 by F. W. Terry and determined by F. Laing—but apparently no slides have been prepared. There is also dry material in PPRD, from Murraya paniculata collected in 2010. This species colonises various species and varieties of Citrus and Murraya . Reported from HK by Lee & Winney (1981).
Five samples in BMNH, from Leucaena leucocephala ,? Albizia corniculata and an undetermined planted legume. There is slight variation between these samples but H. cubana is an exotic introduction from the neotropics and it is unlikely that there is more than one species concerned. BMNH material from L. leucocephala at Tai O (Lantau I.) is only dry-mounted.
Paurocephala bifasciata Kuwayama (1931) (Fig. 33)
Several samples in BMNH, all from Ficus hispida . Hill et al. (1982) reported this species from HK, but as an undescribed taxon. This is the species recorded as Paurocephala sp. by Lee & Winney (1981).
Single large sample in BMNH, from Boehmeria nivea on the Po Lin Monastery—Tung Chung path, Lantau I.
Single sample in BMNH, from Ficus pumila on HK Island.
Two large samples in BMNH, from Trema orientalis . Almost certainly this is the species reported from the same host in HK by Lee & Winney (1981) as P. psylloptera Crawford (1914) . However, many samples of Paurocephala have been erroneously determined as P. psylloptera and that species has not been recorded from HK ( Mifsud & Burckhardt, 2002).
Paurocephala undetermined sp. 1
Single specimen from HK present in MMB (Igor Malenovsky, pers. comm.).
This species was listed from HK by Burckhardt and Mifsud (2003), the host plant quoted as Homalium hainanensis . Two males from HK are present in MMB (Igor Malenovsky, pers. comm.).
