In September 2011, I found the Asian elm aphid Tinocallis takachihoensis Higuchi (Homoptera: Aphididae) on Ulmus minor var. plotii in Wageningen, The Netherlands. This species has not been described from The Netherlands before, but appeared to be present in Wageningen already since 2006. The first record of this species from eastern Asia in Europe was in 1986 in southern France from Ulmus trees. Since then it also was recorded from other European countries.
