Sogatella vibix

Fulgoroidea : Delphacidae
Diseases Transmitted

Described as Liburnia vibix Haupt. Asche and Wilson (1990) record the following other names used for the species: Sogatella catoptron Fennah, Sogatella diachenhea Kuoh, Delphacodes dogensis Ishihara, Delphacodes longifurcifera Esaki and Ishihara, Liburnia matsumurana Metcalf, Delphacodes panicicola Ishihara, and Sogatella parakolophon Linnavuori. Of these names longifurcifera and panicicola have been used frequently in the rice literature.

At present S. vibix is not noted as damaging rice. However, Ammar (1977) reared S. vibix in Egypt on wheat under experimental conditions for eight successive generations; the cultures had originated from rice and other Gramineae. S. vibix is the vector of maize rough dwarf virus in the Middle East (Harpaz, 1972).

Species Description

Species Diagnosis

Coloration stramineous or pale yellow; males have dark brown genae. S. vibix differs from all other Sogatella species in the shape of the male genitalia: the parameres have the outer process of the apical bifurcation dilating from base to middle then tapering to apex with dorsal margin forming a blunt angle (Fig. 3.69).
