Article
Nothotrioza is a small genus of jumping plant lice comprising three described species in Brazil and one in the USA (Florida) that induce galls on the leaves of their myrtaceous hosts. The galls of the Brazilian species are globoid and associated with Psidium spp.; those from Florida are pouch galls on Mosiera. Here we describe two new species from...

Cacopsylla nasuta (Horváth), which is newly recorded from Iran, is redescribed based on specimens collected on Hippophae rhamnoides. The species is morphologically similar to but distinct from Cacopsylla hippophaes (Foerster). Morphological characters are discussed for separating the two taxa. It is concluded that C. nasuta is restricted to the mou...

Cacopsylla permixta and Cacopsylla bidens are major pests of pears in Iran. They are commonly sprayed with various insecticides up to 12 times a year but control by these means is no longer reliable, suggesting the evolution of resistance. Here, we report about 60-fold variation in diazinon susceptibility both among five geographic populations of C...

Article
The introduction of Australian psyllids to non-native ranges across the globe is continually increasing. This is due to an increase in global trade and human movement, exacerbated by climate change. Several psyllids have been recorded as pests of eucalypts in the native range of these trees. With the current trend of eucalypt pest introductions, th...

For a long time, Dutch entomologists showed limited interest in jumping plant lice (or psyllids). The most recent species list of the Netherlands dates back to 1926. Since then only a few short papers have appeared. This is surprising as some species are important agricultural pests. The pear psyllid causes harvest loss worth several tens of millio...
