Aaroniella badonneli (Danks 1950)
"Was first described from Sukhumi on the Black Sea coast and from Tbilisi. It is supposedly holarctic, but I am not so sure. It is entirely parthenogenetic and probably gets around rather readily on imported plants. Danks found it in abundance on Buxus in the botanical gardens. It appears to be very closely related to A. maculosa, a native North American species, and so, I believe it is also probably native to North America." (Ed Mockford, pers. comm. =v=)
