Nonviral Pathogen Associations
associations of bacteria, fungi, mollicutes, and protozoa with insects and insect allies

Field Name

Description

Linked files

Host

Genus and species, subspecies if applicable

Host Classification & Ecology

Pathogen

Genus and species, subspecies if applicable

Pathogen Classification

host stage infected

Host stages in which infection observed.
Egg, Larva, Nymph, Pupa, or Adult

host tissues infected

Host tissues in which infection observed. Authors' choices of terms from citations are followed.

country of observation

Locality for association; country only. Island names may be specified to distinguish from mainland (e.g., USA-Hawaii). Country names are entered as reported by authors, and may not be geopolitically current.

field versus lab

Indicates whether association was observed in the field or the laboratory. Associations observed in greenhouses are entered as "field."

zoogeographic region

For field associations only, indicates in which zoogeographic region association occurred.

intermediate host

An intermediate host is a species necessary for completion of the pathogen's life cycle, in addition to the primary host named in a record. If the intermediate host is an insect or insect ally, a separate record will also list it as the primary host. Very few records name intermediate hosts, either because none exists or because such relationships are not known.

Viral Pathogen Associations
associations of viruses with insects and insect allies

Field Name

Description

Linked files

Host

Genus and species, subspecies if applicable

Host Classfication & Ecology Table

Virus

May be a virus species or unidentified viral disease. This field may be empty in some records

low taxon

Family

high taxon

Either RNA virus, DNA virus, or unknown.

host stage infected

Host stages in which infection observed.
Egg, Larva, Nymph, Pupa, or Adult

host tissues infected

Host tissues in which infection observed. Authors' choices of terms from citations are followed.

country of observation

Where associations observed; country only. Some Island names may be specified to distinguish from mainland areas of a country (e.g., USA-Hawaii). Country names are entered as reported by authors in citations, and may not be geopolitically current.

field versus lab

Indicates whether association was observed in the field or the laboratory.

intermediate host

An intermediate host is a species that is necessary for the completion of the pathogen's life cycle in addition to the host named at the top of the record. If an insect or insect ally is an intermediate host, a separate record will also list it as the main host. Very few records name intermediate hosts, either because none exists or because it is not known.

host tissues infected

Host tissues in which infection observed. Authors' choices of terms from citations are followed.

country of observation

Where associations observed; country only. Some Island names may be specified to distinguish from mainland areas of a country (e.g., USA-Hawaii). Country names are entered as reported by authors in citations, and may not be geopolitically current.

field versus lab

Indicates whether association was observed in the field or the laboratory.

intermediate host

An intermediate host is a species that is necessary for the completion of the pathogen's life cycle in addition to the host named at the top of the record. If an insect or insect ally is an intermediate host, a separate record will also list it as the main host. Very few records name intermediate hosts, either because none exists or because it is not known.
