Four aphid species were identified in the Metsovo potato center, Greece. Rhopalosiphoninus latysiphon, infesting subterranean parts of potato, is reported for the first time in Greece, while Aphis frangulae, infesting the potato foliage, is reported for the first time on potato plants in Greece. High resistance to methamidophos was observed with the latter aphid species. Potato virus Y (PVY) was transmitted by all four species of aphids


Rhopalosiphonicus latysiphon; Aphid resistance to insecticide; Methamidophos
