Topic: Aphids

Are we any closer to getting a checklist for Aphids in Recorder? I know it's a mammoth task, but there is at least work going on:

Re: Aphids

Hi Dave, I think we opted just to update the master taxonomy/synonymy last time I saw a checklist. Actually maintaining a second, separate checklist isn't recommended unless there is a specific requirement to data-enter or report against a fixed list. Do you think there are many updates needed to the UKSI with regard to aphids?

Re: Aphids

There are quite a few species that I couldn't match when trying to import a bunch of records. I'll pull together a list and once I've cross checked against the checklist on the link (to ensure I've not missed a change between what Ed sent me and what he's got on his checklist) I'll get back to you. Presumably you'd prefer them posted here rather than directly?

Taxa that are currently missing from Recorder (and therefore hopefully the UKSI) that I'd like added if possible are:

Acyrthosiphon malvae ssp. agrimoniae (Börner)
Acyrthosiphon malvae ssp. poterii Prior & Stroyan
Acyrthosiphon malvae ssp. potha Börner
Acyrthosiphon malvae ssp. rogersii (Theobald)
Aphis brunellae Schouteden
Aphis chloris Koch
Aphis helianthemi Ferrari
Aphis umbrella (Börner)
Dysaphis crithmi (Buckton)
Ericaphis wakibae (Hottes)
Phyllaphis fagi (Linnaeus)
Phylloxera glabra (von Heyden)
Phylloxerina capreae Börner
Phylloxerina salicis (Lichtenstein)
Pterocallis maculata (von Heyden)
