Abstract

Summary: Inbarian. gen. is proposed based on type species Geoica swirskii Remaudière & Inbar, 2004, resulting in a new combination, Inbaria swirskii (Remaudière & Inbar, 2004) n. comb. Inbaria easily differs from all Pistacia gall-producing aphids of the tribe Fordini by the size of the primary and secondary rhinaria in fall migrants. Inbarian. gen. is differentiated morphologically from the similar genera Geoica Hart, 1894 and Slavum Mordvilko, 1927. Genetically (COI), the two genera Geoica and Inbaria show a large divergence of more than 9% of the sequence. Notes on some morphological characters in apterous fundatrigeniae and descriptions of the embryo of the apterous exule, within alate viviparous females of I. swirskii, are provided.
