  • Aphids on the World's Plants has been reformatted and improved, now combining the updated content from Blackman & Eastop's Aphids on the World's Trees and Aphids on the World's Herbaceous Plants and Shrubs.

Aphid Species File is a taxonomic and bibliographic database of the aphids and allied groups of the world. If the authorship attribution of a genus or species of Aphididae is missing, you can find it in a recent literature citation or "scrutiny" record. If your favorite species is not listed with its proper authorship, it simply means the relevant published original description is not yet on file. Send a copy to Colin and he will get it entered right away!

To see information contained in the database, use the links across the top of the page.  Click on Search to find a specific taxon or other kinds of information.  Clicking on Taxa will make the infraorder Aphidomorpha your current taxon unless you have previously moved to a different taxon in this session.

This website and database use Species File Software.  Information about the design and use of SFS may be found on a separate website.
