Aphis gossypii, one of the most important agricultural pests in the world, can cause serious economic losses in the main crop-producing areas. To clarify issues such as the genetic differentiation, genetic structure, and demographic history of A. gossypii populations, we used 10 nuclear microsatellite loci (SSR) and two mitochondrial gene sequences (COI and Cytb) to investigate genetic.

Description. Melon aphids are soft-bodied, pear-shaped, and pale- to dark-green in cool seasons (spring) and yellow in hot, dry summers. Though winged forms develop periodically, most adults are wingless and about 2.0 mm long.
Aphis gossypii Glover is a destructive pest of over two dozen crops world wide. Damage to a few of these crops is due to direct feeding, but for most of these crops its impact is through its role.
Three cryptic species, Aphis gossypii, Aphis glycines, and Aphis rhamnicola sp. nov., are recognized as sharing buckthorn plant, Rhamnus spp. as primary hosts. These aphid species have morphological similarities; however, there are significant genetic differences between the three cryptic species.
Aphis gossypii is one of the most biologically diverse and widely distributed aphid species. Common names. Cotton aphid, Melon aphid. Distribution. This aphid is globally distributed, located in all but the coldest terrestrial habitats.
