Abstract—Aphis gossypii Glover is highly polyphagous and is now considered to consist of distinct phenotypes and genotypes, both holocyclic and anholocyclic, that vary with respect to their ability to reproduce and food preferences on different host plants. The diversity of its host range in India includes plants belonging to 569 species under 103 plant families. Plants belonging to following families are highly infested: Asteraceae, Cucurbitaceae, Fabaceae, Lamiaceae, Malvaceae, Polygonaceae, Rosaceae and Solanaceae. There are 11 plant families where more than 10 species of plants were infested with A. gossypii in India upto 2013, viz. Asteraceae (77 plant species), Lamiaceae (45 plant species), Fabaceae (35 plant species), Solanaceae (29 plant species), Malvaceae (25 plant species), Cucurbitaceae (24 plant species), Rosaceae (22 plant species), Polygonaceae (16 plant species), Rubiaceae (14 plant species), Apocynaceae (12 plant species) and Acanthaceae (11 plant species).
