Reptalus quinquecostatus (Dufour, 1833)  ( Figs 3View FIGURES 1–11 and 14a –cView FIGURES 12–19)

Recorded damage and economic importance in the orchards of Iran: The species was not recorded as pest on the Iranian fruit trees. However, it has been recorded as pest with mild economic importance on leaves of Salix  spp. ( Abaii 2000).

Recorded damage in the orchards of other parts of the world: The species was reported to have a potential role as a vector for phytoplasma: positive to phytoplasma of Bois noir in grapevine and a potential vector in Serbian vineyards, with the ability of transmitting the stobur phytoplasma in artificial condition and an important vector of stolbur phytoplasma in potatoes in Romania and Southern Russia ( Bertin et al. 2010b, Cvrkovic et al. 2011, Pinzauti et al. 2008).

Recorded distribution in Iran: North ( Mozaffarian & Wilson 2011).

Conclusion: Due to the records in other parts of the world, status as a potential phytoplasma vector in Iran needs to be studied.
