Sipha (Sipha) glyceriae ( Kaltenbach 1843 )
status

 

Sipha (Sipha) glyceriae ( Kaltenbach 1843)   ( Fig. 5–7 View Figures 1-9. 1 , 16 View Figures 10-17. 1 )

This species is a serious rice pest in the Palearctic region, where it is native ( Olmi and Villani 1975). It causes dark brown feeding spots on the leaves ( Fig. 5 View Figures 1-9. 1 ). It is very similar to S. agropyronensis   but has denticles on the cuticle. Although S. glyceriae   was reported in North America more than a century ago, it has not become a rice pest in North America. The Edith Patch Collection (currently housed in the Canadian National Collection, Ottawa) was examined to locate Patch’s specimens of S. glyceriae   for comparison. Unfortunately, no Patch specimens were found in the collection (R. Foottit, personal communication). Whether Sipha glyceriae   constitutes a species complex, or whether host races occur, is not known. Re-collection of North America S. glyceriae   for comparison with the Italian rice pest would be important to determine if they are conspecific.
