The soybean aphid (Aphis glycines Matsamura) is a native pest of soybean in eastern Asia. The aphid is relatively small (less than 1/16-inch long when mature) and pale yellow. It's the only aphid that forms colonies on soybean in the U.S. Identifying features on the wingless forms in soybean include its black cornicles -- tubular structures on the rear of the abdomen, and a pale cauda -- the structure protruding from the rear of the aphid.
