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

Recorded damage in the orchards of other parts of the world: The species is considered as a candidate vector of phytoplasmas (Bois noir) to grapevine in Serbian vineyards and other parts of the world. Although it is able to transmit phytoplasmas, it is not considered a major vector in grapevines ( Lessio & Alma 2008; Filippin et al. 2009; Cvrkovic et al. 2011).

Recorded distribution in Iran: North, northwest, centre and southwest ( Mozaffarian & Wilson 2016).

Conclusion: Pest status in Iran needs to be studied.
