Is Rhus-living Eriosomatinae aphid in Turkey really a new species?


Abstract


Seven alate females collected on Rhus sp. by Dr. Murat Aslan in Turkey are re-studied. Originally considered as an undescribed species, the specimens are determined as Baizongia pistaciae (L.). Misidentification of the host plant probably contributed to lead on the initial confusion. Morphological measurements and ratios of diagnostic characters for the alatae are provided.
