Trioza Foerster 

( Figs 35View FIGURES 28 – 36, 57View FIGURES 47 – 58, 83View FIGURES 81 – 83)

Diagnosis: Trioza  is a large artificial genus and a description is of no systematic value ( Hollis 1984). Species included here are small to medium sized. Head narrower than or as wide as thorax, deflexed from longitudinal body axis; median suture of vertex present and normally complete; usually with genal processes which are not constricted basally ( Fig. 35View FIGURES 28 – 36). Antenna short to moderately long, with a single subapical rhinarium on each of segments 4, 6, 8 and 9. Forewing hyaline, venation triozine; rounded or angular apically ( Fig. 57View FIGURES 47 – 58), if pointed then point lying within cell m1; radular areas present only in m1, m2 and cu1; apex of Cu2 at some distance from apex of Cu1b. Metatibia with several basal spinules, a callus or a tooth, and 1+2 or 1+3 apical spurs; metabasitarsus without apical spurs. Male proctiger with anus apically directed.

Biology and damage: Some New World Trioza  species are associated with Persea  species ( Lauraceae  ). Effects on their host include leaf edge rolls, shoot and leaf distortion and formation of pit galls with growths on leaf surface ( Hollis & Martin 1997).

Host-plants: Many different plant families ( Hollis 1984; Burckhardt 1988).

Distribution: Cosmopolitan ( Hodkinson 1989).— Colombia: Trioza perseae Tuthill ( Vélez 1973)  .
