Invasive Species Compendium

Detailed coverage of invasive species threatening livelihoods and the environment worldwide

Abstract

New World legume-feeding psyllids of the genus Aphalaroida Crawford (Insecta: Homoptera: Psylloidea).

Abstract

Keys, data on food plants and distribution are given for 9 species of Aphalaroida which feed on mimosoid leguminous plants in the southern USA and Central America. Characters previously used to separate species are unreliable, and there is strong evidence to suggest that some species are polymorphic with respect to fore wing pattern.
