A morphometric study, using canonical variates, of the Cryptomyzus galeopsidis complex reveals differences between several forms previously characterized on the basis of their host plant relationships. A form which lives on Lamium maculatum appears to be C. ulmeri (Börner). Another taxon, morphologically very similar to C. galeopsidis (Kaltenbach), which alternates between Ribes rubrum and Lamium galeobdolon, is C. maudamanti Guldemond. Linear discriminant functions have been derived to distinguish these taxa morphologically. The biology of the European species of Cryptomyzus is described, including several previously unknown life cycles and morphs, and a key for the identification of virginoparous females is provided.
