Rhopalosiphum maidis (Corn leaf aphid, BTI-1) (ASM367621v3)

About Rhopalosiphum maidis

Rhopalosiphum maidis, common names corn leaf aphid (Rhopalosiphum maidis) and corn aphid, is an insect, and a pest of maize and other crops. It has a nearly worldwide distribution and is typically found in agricultural fields, grasslands, and forest-grassland zones. Among aphids that feed on maize, it is the most commonly encountered and most economically damaging, particularly in tropical and warmer temperate areas. In addition to maize, R. maidis damages rice, sorghum, and other cultivated and wild monocots.
