    Neotoxoptera formosana (Takahashi) is a pest of wild and cultivated Allium species, but never iwht disastrous consequences. In 1984, N. formosana was found in France. This was the first finding in Europe. Since then, N. formosana has been observed also in other European countries. The first record for The Netherlands dates from 1993. Hoever, this finding is very doubful, because the aphids found were not properly identified; rather the names of three species known to occur on the food plant were suggested, including N. formosana. To my knowledge the present report documents the first occurrence of N. formosana in The Netherlands
