The dusky-veined walnut aphid, Panaphis juglandis (Goeze), appears in three distinct forms: alate viviparous parthenogenetic females, apterous oviparous females, and alate males. Commonly, only the alate viviparous parthenogenetic female form of this aphid can be found during the spring and summer months. The apterous oviparae and males appear during the fall. This suggests that temperature, day length, or host plant (English walnut) condition influences form.
