Abstract

2nd addition to the catalogue of the aphids of continental Portugal (Homoptera, Aphidoidea).

Abstract

The following 27 aphid species are recorded from continental Portugal for the first time: Anoecia nemoralis, Aphis armata, A. intybi, A. lambersi, A. lupoi, A. mamonthovae, A. sanguisorbae, A. stachydis, A. subnitida, A. vallei, Brachyunguis tamaricis, Cavariella theobaldi, Cedrobium laportei [Cinara laportei], Cinara costata, C. escherichi, C. pilicornis, Clethrobius comes, Dysaphis gallica, Elatobium abietinum, Glyphina betulae, Hyperomyzus picridis, Macrosiphoniella artemisiae, Mindarus abietinus, Myzocallis komareki, Periphyllus acericola, Schizaphis pyri and Sipha glyceriae. Aphis affinis and A. epilobii, known in Portugal since 1911 and 1905, respectively, are considered new in the Portuguese aphid fauna because their previous suppression was not correct. Israelaphis tavaresi is a synonym of I. carmini and Masonaphis azaleae is transferred to the older genus Illinoia. Amphorophora rubi ssp. idaei is considered as a full species. The 38 aphid species reported from Portugal after the publication of the 1st Addition are introduced into the catalogue: Acyrthosiphon thracicus, Anuraphis subterranea, Aphanostigma piri, Aphis commensalis, A. crepidis, A. lichtensteini, A. polygonata, Aspidaphis adjuvans, Brachycaudus malvae, B. rumexicolens, Capitophorus carduinus, C. horni, Chaitophorus salicti, Cinara cupressi, C. pini, Coloradoa rufomaculata, Cryptaphis poae, Dreyfusia piceae, Dysaphis aucupariae, D. foeniculus, Gilletteella coweni, Holcaphis agrostidis, H. frequens, [Diuraphis frequens], Hyadaphis coriandri, Hyperomyzus hieracii, Macrosiphoniella abrotani, Microlophium primulae [Adelges cooleyi], Myzocallis occidentalis, Myzus certus, Ovatus inulae, Paracletus cimiciformis, Pleotrichophorus chrysanthemi, Rhopalomyzus poae, Rhopalosiphoninus tulipaellus, Rungsia elegans, Semiaphis dauci, Tetraneura akinire, Therioaphis alatina and T. riehmi. New host plants or new localities are given for a number of aphids already known in Portugal. A list of aphids from continental Portugal, considering published records only, as well as that of host plants and respective aphids mentioned in this paper are published.
