Abstract: Aphids were collected from colonies during a number of surveys carried out between October 1988 and April 1995, mainly in the Riyadh, Asir, Tabuk and Jizan areas. Sixty-one aphid species and subspecies were recorded from 30 genera representing four subfamilies. Six species represented new records for the Arabian Peninsula and sixteen species were recorded for the first time in Saudi Arabia. The most common species were Aphis gossypii Glover, A. craccivora Koch, Myzus persicae ( Sulzer ) and Macrosiphum euphorbiae ( Thomas ). The most common aphid hosts were species of Poaceae ( Gramineae ), Fabaceae, Asteraceae and Solanaceae. The host plant species was infested with one to seven aphid species. Triticum aestivum was infested by seven aphid species
