Aphis gossypii Glover, 1877 

Diagnosis

Aptera 0.8–1.7 mm. Pale green to blackish green; siphunculi black. Small, pale yellow specimens occur in in crowded colonies or hot conditions. In cold temperate regions mostly in glasshouses. Dioecious with several unrelated plants as primary hosts, in Europe, however, mostly anholocyclic. Very similar to A. beccabungae Koch, 1855  ( Fig. 24View Fig) and other species of the A. frangulae  group. See Blackman & Eastop (2014) and Heie (1986) for differences and a more complete account. Dioecious but usually anholocyclic, polyphagous.
