Lucid key to Important Aphids. Preferred Scientific Name; Aulacorthum solani solani. Taxonomic Tree; Domain: Eukaryota; Kingdom: Metazoa; Phylum: Arthropoda. Light infestations of A. solani can severely injure potato foliage. Its feeding causes discoloured spots on tobacco, and heavily infested plants can show large .

With the use of organic insecticides, direct feeding damage has become less serious. Mizukoshi and Kakizaki reported the trapping of early instars of A.

Genus Aulacorthum

Their siphunculi are pale with dark tips, long, slender, tapered and distinctly flanged. It is a true bug and sucks sap from plants. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Gibson reported A. Knowledge Bank home Change location. The antennal tubercles are well developed with near parallel steep-sided inner face cf. The aphid also transmits other viruses, including Cucumber mosaic virus Contangelo et al.

AphID – Aulacorthum solani

Datasheet Aulacorthum solani solani. There are 48 species of Aulacorthum aphids, on a great variety of hosts.

Neomyzus where they solnai converging. In microcosm experiments inundative augmentation of natural flightless morphs of Adalia bipunctata revealed no differences in consumption behaviour of A.

Indirect damage is caused by honeydew production and virus transmission. Genus Aulacorthum Aulacorthum aphids On this page: Acknowledgements We have made provisional identifications from high resolution photos of living specimens, along with host plant identity. Aulacorthum solani can also be a vector of about 40 plant viruses, but its relatively poor virus transmission efficiency makes it unimportant as a virus vector in the field. There are no pictures available for this datasheet If you can supply pictures for this datasheet please contact: Cookies on Aulacrothum Knowledge Bank Like most websites we use cookies.


Examples of biological control agents used against A. This results in direct feeding damage to potatoes and peppers.

In the persistent transmission of viruses, the incubation period is long enough to allow aphicides to control vectors. In another study on greenhouse pepper, the EIL obtained was so aulcaorthum that treatment was required as soon as aphids were detected to prevent economic losses Hermoso de Mendoza et al.

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

Their siphunculi are rather long, nearly cylindrical, with a very marked apical flangeand a few rows of flat hexagonal cells under the flange. This includes consideration of the growing area, agricultural practices and chemical control Raman, 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 percentage of infection can lead to rejection of an entire seed lot.

Aulacorthum solani has been recorded on at least 10 Solanum species. We fully acknowledge these authors as the source for the summarized taxonomic information we have presented. Views Read Edit View history.


Rasocha describes carbamates and pyrethroids used for aphid control.

In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikispecies. Kibata describes an integrated control approach which has been successful in Kenya. We have made provisional identifications from high resolution photos of living specimens, along with host plant identity. Feeding also causes irregular curling of young potato leaflets and it is speculated that growth of the leaflet is hindered as a result of the feeding puncture.

As a result, Aulacorthum solani is often one of the first aphid species to find on young plants in the spring. Dried tobacco leaf smoke showed some effectiveness against aphid pests, including A. Its importance is much greater in glasshouses. The high toxicity of the saliva of the glasshouse – potato aphid may produce deformation and discoloration of leaves being fed upon. Although it does not appear to have been used commercially, A. I think your aphid is the highly polyphagous Aulacorthum solani.

Aulacorthum solani Kaltenbach, Fenthion and etofenprox were used by Okubo b during early stages of soyabean growth. Aulacorthum aphids are not ant attended.
