Laodelphax striatellus (Fallén, 1826)  ( Figs 4View FIGURES 1–11 and 15a –bView FIGURES 12–19)

Recorded damage and economic importance in the orchards of Iran: Not recorded.

Recorded damage in the orchards of other parts of the world: It is recorded as a potential vector for Bois noir/ Stolbur phytoplasma. The species tested positive to Aster yellows in vineyards in the Czech Republic ( Batlle et al. 2000; Orsagova et al. 2011).

Recorded distribution in Iran: Nearly all of Iran ( Mozaffarian & Wilson 2011).

Conclusion: The species is widely distributed in Iran. Due to the records of its vector status elsewhere, it needs to be investigated in Iran as well.
