Grape Phylloxera External Morphology Observations under Scanning Electron Microscopy

Kingston, K B; Powell, K S; Cooper, Paul


Grape phylloxera is a major viticulture pest present in most grape-growing regions of the world. Radicicolae grape phylloxera feed on the root system of grapevines, and may result in the death of susceptible vines. During an investigation into the biology of grape phylloxera, scanning electron microscopy was used to examine the insects' external morphology. During incomplete metamorphosis, grape phylloxera moult four times with a sequential increase in size with each instar. Parthenogenetic egg...[Show more]
