Twice in the last 7 or 8 years, I've been told about or have been shown yellow aphids attacking potted bromeliads. The aphid specialist I contacted said they were rice root aphids, not of great interest. But now there's an aphid specialist who wants to study them. If anyone has some now or in September, please mail them to me to hand over to the specialist -- maybe this will help us learn something new. --
