Five leafhoppers and one planthopper new for the Netherlands (Homoptera: Auchenorrhyncha: Cicadellidae & Tettigometridae).

Bieman, C. F. M. den ; Haas, M. de

Entomologische Berichten 2019 Vol 79 No. 4 pp. 147-153;


The leafhoppers Empoasca affinis, Megophthalmus scabripennis, Kybos abstrusus, K. calyculus, Macrosteles sardus and the planthopper Tettigometra impressopunctata were recorded for the first time in the Netherlands. The discovery of Tettigometra impressopunctata was remarkable. It is the first time in more than a century that specimens of the family Tettigometridae were collected in the Netherlands. Of each newly reported species, the ecology and distribution are discussed. The discovery of these six Auchenorrhyncha species was the result of more intense collection in recent years.
