Aphidius ervi will consume all types of larger aphids, especially the potato aphid, Macrosiphum euphorbiae, and the glasshouse potato aphid, Aulacorthum. Erviline biological control agent contains the Braconid wasp, Aphidius ervi. It stings and parasitizes larger aphids, such as the foxglove aphid, Aulacorthum. Aphidius ervi. Type of insect: Wasp. Kingdom Animalia, Phylum Arthropoda, Class Insecta, Order Hymenoptera, Family Aphidiidae. How to identify it: Mummies.

Koppert Biological Systems can not be held liable for unauthorized use. Transcriptome analysis of an endoparasitoid wasp Cotesia aphidisu Hymenoptera: Host specialization in habitat specialists and generalists. Table 1 Summary of Aphidius ervi transcriptomic libraries and assembly statistics.

As expected, the transcriptomes from parasitoids reared on the same host species pea aphid but originating from different host plants pea versus alfalfa were more similar to each aphiduus than the transcriptomes of parasitoids reared on a different aphid host and host plant head: Does sex-biased dispersal account for the lack of geographic and host-associated differentiation in introduced populations of an aphid parasitoid? Furthermore, this sodium channel in D.

They look very similar to Aphidius colemani but are darker and slightly larger. Journal of Insect Physiology. Clean Illumina datasets were pooled in silico by concatenating library files. erci

The following information was supplied regarding data availability:. We thank Francisca Zepeda-Paulo for providing A.

eevi Interestingly, both Ae-AP populations APA and APP had a higher number of up-regulated chemosensory genes and neuronal-related genes compared to Ae-SA Table 3 —additional file 1which is similar to that observed in other insect species capable of using different hosts, such as in the Mediterranean corn borer Sesamia nonagrioides Glaser et al.

Bulletin of Entomological Research.

Pea aphids from both alfalfa and pea races were maintained in the laboratory on broad bean Vicia faba L. Most parasitoids used for controlling aphids are endoparasitoids, which lay eggs inside their host as part of their life cycle and eventually killing it.

Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience. Endoparasitoids may attack many related host species e. Heads and bodies were dissected on ice using a sterile scalpel and pooled in six different samples.

More generally, our results provide some input aphidiu discussion on the impact of phenotypic plasticity on evolutionary changes. Materials and Methods Insect collection and rearing Parasitized aphids two host races of Acyrthosiphon pisum and Sitobion avenae were collected from fields of legumes and cereals in two different geographic zones in Chile: Developmental plasticity and evolution.

One way to test between these options is to compare the transcriptomes of A.

Acceptance and suitability of Acyrthosiphon pisum and Sitobion avenae as hosts of the aphid parasitoid Aphidius ervi Hymenoptera: Current Opinion in Insect Science. Additionally, variation in olfactorybehavior showed by different lines of Drosophila melanogaster has been linked to variants in genes involved in nervous systems development and function, such as Rho signaling Arya et al.

Open the vial in the crop where they are to be released. Journal of Evolutionary Biology.

The following rates have been determined overseas for the control of Aulacorthum solani and Macrosiphum euphorbiae in greenhouse vegetables and can be used as a guide. The genes emphasized in this study deserve special attention for future research in order to prove their role in host preference and host selection by A. To further improve the accuracy of differentially expressed genes, all contigs aligning to the same protein were grouped using BLASTx homology results and were sorted by alignment BitScore.
