Comments. It seems, this aphid species have been noted by Fridolin (1936) as Aphis craccae Linnaeus  on Oxytropis sordida  and Astragalus alpinus arcticus Lindm. Fridolin  collected these aphids from Astragalinae and describes them as black in a white waxy pulverulence, which is typical for Aphis astragali  while Aphis craccae  during life have gray or bluish-gray pulverulence.
