Agarose gel visualizing the products of direct PCR in initial trials testing the novel primers with fresh Aphidius samples. Three direct PCR reactions were conducted with the following primer pairs: 1 LCO1490/Aph1Rd 2 Aph2Fd/Aph2Rd; and 3 Aph3Fd/HCO2198. The species included in trials were: AF1- A. tanacetarius, AF2- A. sussi, AF3- A. sonchi, AF4- A. linosiphonis and AF5- A. ribis. M – marker.
