Plant Parasites of Europe

leafminers, galls and fungi

Aphis psammophila

Aphis psammophila Szelegiewicz, 1967

on Campanula, Jasione

parasite

Apterae 1-1.5 mm, green to dark green with brownish head, dark siphunculi (sometimes pale at base).

host plants

Campanulaceae, oligophagous

Campanula rotundifolia; Jasione heldreichii, montana.

Suay Cano & González Funes mention as hostplants Dipsacus fullonum and Sixalix atropurpurea; that almost sounds as a mistake.
