Caption: Bean aphid (Aphis fabae), artwork. This is a wingless female adult. It is able to reproduce parthenogentically (asexual reproduction), giving birth to pregnant offspring. This phenomenon is known as telescoping generations. The outlines of the young can be seen inside her. The stages of growth of a juvenile have been reproduced alongside the adult (right). The adults measure 2- 3mm in length.
