Abstract


Aphids cause damage to numerous crops and ornamentals. Most of them are relatively host specific, but some species are polyphagous and feed on several different hosts. In this paper we present new records for Aphis gossypii Glover, Aphis spiraecola Patch, Myzus ornatus Laing, Myzus persicae Sulzer, Hysteroneura setariae Thomas and Schizaphis rotundiventris Signoret, on several hosts belonging to a wide variety of plant families.
