The names of the species established by Stekolshchikov and Buga in Zootaxa, volume 4527, number 4, Aphis khrulevi and Dysaphis karyakini, are incorrect original spellings according to the rules of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. In accordance with the Code, they are amended to Aphis khrulevae Stekolshchikov and Buga, 2018 and Dysaphis koryakini Stekolshchikov and Buga, 2018, respectively.
