Foliage damage caused by Daktulosphaira vitifoliae (Fitch) was recorded on 23 commercial wine grape cultivars and on wild grapevines, Vitis riparia Michx, in Erie County, Pa., from 1971-75. Wild grapevines sustained the heaviest foliage damage from grape phylloxera. Commercial cultivars sustaining the heaviest foliage damage were ‘Aurora’, ‘Cascade’, ‘Chancellor’, ‘Rayon D’Or', ‘Seyval’, and ‘Villard Blanc’.
