"This species is often confused with Lipaphis erysimi. As far as we know, L. erysimi only occurs in northern Europe, whereas L. pseudobrassicae is widely distributed. The two species are extremely similar, but L. pseudobrassicae has relatively longer antennae and relatively shorter siphunculi than L. erysimi." BugGuide
