oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Some notes on the aphid fauna of South Africa

Volume 21, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



Although many species of aphids are of the greatest economic importance, only little is known about the aphid fauna of the Union of South Africa. Theobald has descriptionbed or mentioned in his papers on African Aphididae a number of species which were collected in South Africa. More recent papers on African Aphididae deal, however, with collections made in other parts of the continent. Mimeur, for example, studied the aphids of Morocco, and Hall listed species occurring in Egypt and Southern Rhodesia. East African aphids are the subject of several publications by de Lotto and by Eastop. Other puplications dealing with new or little known African aphids are few in number.
