The Brown Citrus Aphid, as its name may suggest is an aphid that only feed from citric plants, like orange, mandarine and lemon, they are native to asia, but the exportation of trees and leaves lead this species to be all over the tropic of the world. They are being tended by some ants whose species has not been identified yet-
I´m working on an investigation project about the evolutionary methods of the aphids, this is the especies I´m currently using in the investigation, and I really need to know the species of the tending ants in here, so if anyone can help, it woul be really appreciated.
