Field observation, morphological study, and transfer experiments showed that yellow aphids on Loropetalum chinense (Hamamelidaceae) are that primary host generations of Micromyzodium kuwakusae (Uye) that has been reported to be associated with Fatoua villosa (Moraceae). The present study showed that M. kuwakusae alternates host plants between L. chinense as a primary host and F. villosa as a secondary host. Some morphs on the primary host of M. kuwakusae are described for the first time, and the life cycle is summarized.
