Aphidius ervi will consume all types of larger aphids, especially the potato aphid, Macrosiphum euphorbiae, and the glasshouse potato aphid, Aulacorthum. Erviline biological control agent contains the Braconid wasp, Aphidius ervi. It stings and parasitizes larger aphids, such as the foxglove aphid, Aulacorthum. Aphidius ervi. Type of insect: Wasp. Kingdom Animalia, Phylum Arthropoda, Class Insecta, Order Hymenoptera, Family Aphidiidae. How to identify it: Mummies.

Although the influence of possible genotypic variation between A. It is indeed puzzling that, although the population does not seem to be subdivided but rather genetically homogenous most likely due to the relative recent introduction of a limited number of individuals into Chile erv, we can observe distinct and persistent phenotypic and transcriptional differences between parasitoids coming from different aphid host species and host races.

All aphid populations were free of known aphidiys endosymbionts; their presence was evaluated using the amplification of specific 16S rDNA from whole-body aphid DNA based on the set of known primers described by Peccoud et al. Journal of Evolutionary Biology.

Data Availability The following information was supplied regarding data availability:. Aphidiidaea polyphagous parasitoid of cereal aphids Hemiptera: The ecology of adaptive radiation.

The biological control project against the cereal aphids Hom. More generally, our results provide some input for discussion on the impact of phenotypic plasticity on evolutionary changes. We work in a range of crops and have developed biologically based IPM programs to control the major pests.


We generated a de novo transcriptome for A. Prices are on a sliding scale i.

Aphidius ervi

Ervi are sent as aphid mummies in a small vial. Identification of differential expression genes associated with host selection and adaptation between two sibling insect species by transcriptional profile analysis. Supplemental Information 1 Supplementary File: All differentially expressed transcripts were annotated using the results from BlastX alignments while GO terms were assigned using Blast2GO mapping results, which in turn was used to identify the functions of genes displaying different expression patterns between populations and tissues Figs.

Raw transcriptomic data is available under BioProject ID: Additionally, our experimental setup allowed us to identify differentially expressed genes between A.

The DSC1 channel, encoded by the smi60E locus, contributes to aphiddius behavior in Drosophila melanogaster. Each week, new aphid infested plants were introduced into the A. Assembly, assessment, and availability of De novo generated eukaryotic transcriptomes. The relationship between host selection behaviour and offspring fitness in a koinobiont parasitoid.

Where several aphid species are present or you are not sure which aphid species is present, you can release Ervi in conjunction with Aphidius colemani and Aphelinus abdominalis which will cover many species of aphid pests. Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience. The parasite deposits an egg into the aphid in a matter of seconds. Journal of General Physiology. A total of 10, contigs Storage and handling Biological beneficials have a very short life expectancy and therefore need to be introduced into the crop as soon as possible after receipt.


Ultrafast and memory-efficient alignment of short DNA sequences to the human genome. Modifying effects of phenotypic plasticity on interactions among natural selection, adaptation and gene flow.

Ervi (Aphidius ervi) – Biological Services, Australia

This differential expression of candidate chemosensory genes, signaling genes and neuronal development genes may explain host-fidelity in A. The genes emphasized in this study deserve special attention for future research in order to prove their role in host preference and host selection by A. Deep sequencing identifies viral and wasp genes with potential roles in replication of Microplitis demolitor Bracovirus.

Differential gene expression analysis The insect filtered, non-redundant reference transcriptome was used as a basis for differential gene expression studies between tissues separate for head and body Fig.

Our results indicate that there is a good correlation within head samples and within body samples, while clear differential expression patterns are observed for different body parts Fig.

The parasitoid develops within the aphid body which at this stage called a “mummy”. Chemical use Ervi is sensitive to many pesticides, particularly pyrethroids, organophosphates and neonicotinoids. Insights into the olfactory system of the ectoparasite Caligus rogercresseyi: Aphididae Bulletin of Entomological Research.

A total of 2, near-universal single-copy orthologs from Arthropod species were used as reference core aphiddius available at busco.
