|Abstract:||Investigation of Macrosiphini in Belarus started in the 1900s. However, a regional checklist of Macrosiphini has not been published yet. Based on material preserved in our collections and data scattered across publications, we have compiled the first comprehensive list of Macrosiphini recorded from Belarus and briefly analysed it from the geographical and ecological points of view. The list includes 52 genera, 156 species and 2 subspecies. Acyrthosiphon cyparissiae (Koch, 1855), A. euphorbiae Börner, 1949, Diuraphis (Holcaphis) frequens (Walker, 1848), Dysaphis angelicae (Koch, 1854), D. apiifolia petroselini (Börner, 1950), D. lauberti (Börner, 1940), Paramyzus heraclei Börner, 1933, Macrosiphum melampyri Mordvilko, 1919, and Uroleucon pulicariae (Hille Ris Lambers, 1939) are recorded from Belarus for the first time. The recorded diversity is lower than in the adjacent countries – Poland and Latvia. In accordance with the global pattern of aphid relations with their host plants, the majority of Belarusian Macrosiphini species permanently inhabit herbaceous plants (monoecious species) or migrate to them from woody plants (dioecious species). Among the recorded species, 27 inhabit a single host plant species, 85 – plants of a single genus, 37 – plants of a single family, and only seven species inhabit host plants of several families or more. At least 16 species (10% of local fauna of Macrosiphini) are alien to Belarus.|
