Glasshouse potato/foxglove aphid Aulacorthum solani
The greenhouse potato aphid (also known as the foxglove aphid) occurs especially in potato, chrysanthemum, lettuce, capsicum, bean and eggplant (aubergine) and sometimes in tomato.
The adult greenhouse potato aphid is green with a dark head and thorax. The siphunculi are light green. The winged female has very clear dark stripes on her abdomen. The glasshouse potato aphid can cause curly tops in capsicums and potatoes by injecting a toxic substance into the plant while feeding.
Greenhouse potato aphids are controlled by Aphidius ervi (Ervi) and Aphelinus abdominalis (Aphelinus).
