Aphids are important pests of crop production. Australia has been subject to many aphid incursions. In this paper, we describe the first detection in Australia of the bean or vetch aphid Megoura crassicauda Mordvilko, a pest of broad beans (Vicia faba L.) and related legumes, and provide background information on the insect. The potential to establish and spread is discussed.
