**********

Honduras comprises 18 political units called Departmentos (Departments) representing a wide variety of habitats and ecosystems. Very few studies have examined the aphid fauna of Honduras. Evers (1968) reported 14 aphid species associated with banana and nearby ground cover plants in the banana plantations of the Ulua Valley in northern Honduras. Smith & Cermeli (1979) reported 3 additional species from Honduras in their catalog of aphids of the Caribbean Islands, and South and Central America.

From 1987 to 1988, the senior author (GAE) collected aphids and other insects on plants in several departments of Honduras, but primarily in the central and western region. Host plants were identified by Dr. Antonio Molina of the Panamerican Agricultural School (EAP), Zamorano, Honduras. In addition, we have included unpublished records of aphid specimens present in the United States National Museum (USNM) collection and those intercepted by the Animal Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS, USDA). from 1988 to 2007 at U.S. ports of entry on shipments of products from Honduras. Readers are cautioned that species that are only known from specimens intercepted at a U.S. port of entry on plant material exported from Honduras may not necessarily be established in Honduras, and must be confirmed by collections made on plants grown within the country.

Forty-six species of aphids, belonging to 30 different genera, are reported in Honduras based upon these collections, literature records, and the species intercepted at U.S. ports of entry from Honduras; of these, 26 represent new distribution records. A host plant list for the aphids collected in or on shipments from Honduras is included. Several of the records of aphids occurring on plants that we have noted are unlikely to be the aphid's "true" host. Aphids often will land on a non-host plant, but will not feed and develop on the plant. The following format is used to present the collection and record data. Each record begins with the name of the Department of Honduras written in capital letters followed by the city, date of collection, collector and host plant. The Department of Francisco Morazan and the Escuela Agricola Panamericana are abbreviated as FCO. MORAZAN and EAP, respectively.

It is unlikely that Daucus carota and Cucumis melo are true hosts of this species, which usually develops on grasses.

Toxoptera citricida (Kirkaldy): Honduras. Voetgtlin et al. (2003) reported this species from Costa Rica. Castro (1995) in his survey of the aphids on citrus in Honduras, did not find this species; however, the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO) reported its presence in Honduras on their website (EPPO, 2006). This is a very important economic pest, especially for its ability to vector the citrus tristeza virus.

Uroleucon compositae (Theobold): Smith and Cermeli (1979) listed this species from Honduras.
