The revision by Scholler, Schmidt, Siahaan ao (2016a) has demonstrated that “biocellatus” actually is a complex of several species: biocellatus sensu stricto, monardae, salviae, and neosalviae. However, not all plant genera from which “biocellatus” has been reported were included in the revision. They are treated here as hosts of biocellatus sensu lato.
