Louise M. Russell


The genus Neophyllaphis Takahashi and its described species (araucariae Takahashi, brimblecombei Carver, fransseni Hille Ris Lambers, gingerensis Carver, grobleri Eastop, michelbacheri (Essig), podocarpi Takahashi, rappardi Hille Ris Lambers, totarae Cottier, viridis Ilharco) are reviewed. Keys are provided to the adults of known morphs. The alate oviparous female of fransseni and the alate viviparous female of viridis are described for the first time, and additional descriptive notes are given for 9 previously described morphs. N. podocarpi is reported from Hawaii for a new state record. Annotated citations are given to virtually all of the literature on the genus and its species.
