Caption: Green peach aphid. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a green peach aphid (Myzus persicae), seen from beneath. This insect feeds on crops such as the potato, causing significant damage to the leaves, which it pierces with its long stylet (upper to lower centre). It is also a major vector for viral plant diseases, which it transmits whilst feeding. Magnification: x90 at 5x7cm size. x150 at 4x5 inch size.
