The expansive Russian wheat aphid,Diuraphis noxia (Mordw.) detected in the Czech Republic

  • P. Starý


The Russian wheat aphid,Diuraphis noxia (Mordw.) has been detected in southern Moravia, the Czech Republic in June, 1995. Its location is related to its incidence in central Hungary. The further predicted area of distribution covers the grain-maize growing districts of southern Moravia (Czeck Republic), neigh-bouring parts of Austria, southern and south-eastern parts of the Slovak Republic. The aphid is classified as a species expanding to the north from its mediaterranean area of distribution, apart of extensive areas (North to South Americas, S. Africa, expected in Australia) which it has covered thorugh accidental introductions and further spread over the world.
