Mark record


A survey of alate aphids collected with suction traps was conducted at four sites in the province of Québec between 1978 and 1984. A total of 200 species were identified among the 14 468 alate viviparae and males collected. Among the identified species were 65 that represent new records for Québec, of which 14 are new records for Canada, including the following 5 species recorded for the first time in North America: Aphis taraxacicola, Coloradoa abrotani, Coloradoa achilleae, Hyperomyzus (Hyperomyzella) rhinanthi and Macrosiphoniella usquertensis. Collection data suggest that more than 50% of the newly recorded species may be endemic in the province, including potential pests of agricultural crops.
