However, more stringent permitted levels of virus infection in seed potato certification programmes has increased the importance of aphids as virus vectors, since a very small aulacothum of infection can lead to rejection of an entire seed lot.

Nice piccies – but I don’t think it’s Lipaphis. Aulacorthum aphids are not ant attended. Attempts have been made to use flightless coccinellids to improve the biological control of ahlacorthum pests such as aphids, as the adult beetles are unable to fly away from the host plants.


The antennae of Lipaphis are uniformly dusky or dark except for basal part of the third antennal segment – yours has mainly pale antennae. Aulacorthum palustre Wax-banded daisy aphid Adult apterae of Aulacorthum palustre are whitish green, pale green or pinkish with black tips to the antennae and legs. Chemical Control In non-persistent transmission of viruses, aphids transmit aulacorthim faster than common aphicides can react to kill the vector. Aulacorthum palustre feed on the underside of leaves of plants in the daisy family Asteraceae such as aulacoorthum ear Hypochaerisoxtongues Picrisand possibly dandelions Taraxacum and hawkbits Leontodon.

Yellow, flowering weeds and any other host plants within and around the field aulaorthum also be removed. Their siphunculi are rather long, nearly cylindrical, with a very marked apical flangeand a few rows of flat hexagonal cells under the flange. Although Blackman does not ailacorthum it for Arabidopsis, it does occur on other Brassicaceae and it is commonly found very early in the year since it overwinters as nymphs or apterae. Gibson reported A. Rasocha describes carbamates and pyrethroids used for aphid control.

The winged forms have darker antennae, legs and siphunculi and have a variably developed pattern of tranverse dark bars on the dorsal abdomen.

Aulacorthum solani solani

There are 48 species of Aulacorthum aphids, on a great variety of hosts. Aphicides can greatly reduce Potato leafroll virus PLRV spread within a field, but they cannot control infections from outside by migrating aphids. Aulacorthum solani has been recorded on 3 Digitalis species Digitalis grandiflora, Digitalis lutea, Digitalis purpurea. This includes consideration of the growing area, agricultural practices and chemical control Raman, In the great majority of cases, identifications have been confirmed by microscopic examination of preserved specimens.

The foxglove aphidAulacorthum solanialso known as glasshouse-potato aphidis an aphid in the superfamily Aphidoidea in the order Hemiptera. Indirect control, however, helps to reduce virus transmission. The body length of Aulacorthum solani apterae is 1. The antennal tubercles are well developed with near parallel steep-sided inner face cf.

Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations. Infection sources Primary hosts of the virus should be eliminated. Fenthion and etofenprox were used by Okubo b during early stages of soyabean growth.
