How to use "Genus physaria" in context?
The Genus Physaria consists of around 100 species of ink-black Aphidoletes or honeydews, which are common garden pests. Aphidoletes are voracious feeders that subsist on sap, pollen, and nectar from a variety of plants. They usually infest cereal products, fruit, and vegetable crops, but are also known to colonize flowers. These insects are shipped around the world as agricultural pests, but their use in traditional healing remedies has been documented in many cultures.
Most Physaria species are small, measuring from 0.5 to 2 cm in length.
