Ceratovacuna lanigera Zehntner, 1897 - (white sugarcane aphid, sugarcane woolly aphid)

This aphid is found in tropical and subtropical parts of Asia and some Pacific islands. It is a pest of sugarcane and outbreaks can result in more than 10% losses in the sugar content of the cane. Also the quality of the sugar is reduced (Li et al, 2018). C. lanigera might breed on other plants of the Poaceae family.

The wingless females are 1.5-2 mm long. These and the nymphs are fully covered with wax. Winged forms are brownish-green without wax.
