About this book

Fauna of India: Homoptera: Aphidoidea, Part 1, dealing with a general introduction to the group and the subfamily Chaitophorinae, was published in June, 1980. This important group of insects, most well-known for their role as plant-virus vectors. has two families, Aphididae and Adelgidae; the current volume deals with the second subfamily i.e., Lachninae, out of the eight subfamilies of Aphididae. Lachnids are world wide in distribution and largely inhabit vegetation of temperate region and are regarded as one of the major forest pests especially on conifers. In this volume. as in the previous, the author, Dr. A. K. Ghosh, one of the eminent aphidologists of the country, has dealt extensively with all the species of subfamily Lachninae so far known from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka; the information includes detailed descriptions, keys, geographical distribution, natural enemies, association with ants, and the host-plants of the species.
