Abstract
A high infestation of aphids was observed at private orchards of mango (Mangifera indica L.) in the Brazilian northeast, with significant damage to young leaves, buds and inflorescences of the plants. Three aphid species were identified from collected samples: Aphis craccivora, Aphis gossypii and Toxoptera aurantii. In Brazil, this is the first record of A. craccivora and A. gossypii as pest on this fruit crop. Voucher specimens are deposited at the Entomology Laboratory of the Embrapa Semi-árido Research Center.
