Short taxonomic and ecological accounts are given on the galligenous Eriosomatine Zelkovaphis trinacriae, a relict aphid species only known in Sicily, where it has a dioecious life cycle with Zelkova sicula as its primary host. Any secondary hosts remain as yet unknown, while comparisonswith other similar aphids suggests that the Cyperaceae species (probably Carex) may be involved.Comparative notes on most allied aphid species and their distributions are also given.
