<p>The focal predators are in black balloons, the prey are in white (extraguild) and grey (intraguild) balloons with black letters and edges, the parasitoids in white balloons with grey edges, in which grey letters are for the known aphid parasitoids, and black letters for other parasitoids. The arrows indicate the flux of biomass, in which black arrows indicate direct predation, and the dashed arrows indicate inferred predation associated with symbionts. The numbers at the origin of each arrow indicate the number of reads supporting the arrow, which for inferred predation is a thesum of the total aphid-specific symbiont reads.</p>
