Lindbergina aurovittata (Douglas, 1875) ( Fig. 2 I)

First record from Switzerland: Basel-Landschaft, Muttenz, urban settlement area, specimen collected on Betula pendula [47 ° 31 ’ 32.53 ’’ N; 7 ° 38 ’ 21.59 ’’ E, 289 m], 1 ♂ and 1 ♀, 17.08. 2011, tree-suction sampler, leg. Tabea Turrini, det. Gernot Kunz GoogleMaps .

Distribution: Ireland, England, Belgium, Luxembourg (Niedringhaus et al. 2010), Germany, France, Portugal, Italy, Bulgaria, Greece, Slovenia, Switzerland.

Remarks:This leafhopper produces two generations each year. The summer generation switches the host plant from different woody species ( Quercus spp., Fagus sylvatica , Alnus glutinosa , Corylus avellana and Betula pubescens )to Rubus fruticosus and lays the eggs on this evergreen plant for overwintering. Adults during springtime switch again to their summer hosts.
