• Three of the four alien and invasive aphid species of the genus Takecallis known in Europe, have been identified in Poland
  • In botanic gardens, populations of the bamboo aphid species of the genus Takecallis are established, while garden centers are their reservoir
  • The introduction of frost-resistant bamboo varieties (e.g. Fargesia spp.) will support the further spread of Takecallis species in our climate zone
The occurrence of three bamboo aphid species of the genus Takecallis was detected. T. arundicolens (Clarke) and T. arundinariae (Essig) were recorded for the first time in Poland, and new localities for T. nigroantennatus Wieczorek were found. Key diagnostic morphological characteristics to help distinguish these species and DNA barcoding to analyze individuals at the molecular level were provided.
We are very grateful to Agnieszka Zawisza-Raszka (Zabrze Botanic Garden, Poland) for help during the visits in the MOB Zabrze and to Łukasz Gajda (UŚ, Katowice, Poland) for preparing species verification at the molecular level.
