Unformatted text preview: VEN 2 Phylloxera and the World Grape Industries Phylloxera • Scientific name: Daktulosphaira vitifoliae FITCH • A Homopteran type of insect (aphids, scale, and white flies). • Co-evolved in Eastern North America with native Vitis species • The insect has both below ground and aerial portions to its life-cycle • Rarely see the above-ground type of Phylloxera in California • The below ground insect can kill grapevines ( Vitis vinifera L. cultivars) Phylloxera • The ‘radicicole’ is the below-ground insect with its distinct life cycle • The ‘gallicole’ is the above-ground insect and with its distinct life-cycle. This portion forms galls on leaves of American Vitis spp., but not on V. vinifera in California. • Recently, leaf galls (from Phylloxera) have been found on grape rootstocks growing at several nurseries in California.

These infections can kill large portions of the root system.

History of Grape Phylloxera • Native range was eastern North America and some portions of northern South America. This is one of the reasons Vitis vinifera cultivars failed in Colonial America. • It was introduced into Europe on specimens imported to museums in 1863. By 1900, 75% of vineyards in France were destroyed. • It spread rapidly throughout France and then to other locations in Europe and N. Africa. • Spread to California in 1870 – 1873 (remember CA History).
