On the basis of available information it may be concluded that the single existing specimen of Chrysopa phyllochroma Wesmael, 1841 identified by the author of this species cannot be regarded as a holotype, and it is not suitable for designation as lectotype or neotype of the species. Investigation of the possible variability of the male and female internal genitalia of eidonomically typical Ch. commata Kis et Újhelyi, 1965 specimens, detailed comparative examination of male and female genitalia of other commata/ phyllochroma-like forms, and neotype designation for Ch. phyllochroma are necessary. Identity of the Asian specimens identified as Ch. commata is entirely uncertain without accurate investigation of male genitalia including all of the internal parts.
