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

Recorded damage in the orchards of other parts of the world: In Europe, the species has been recorded as a potential vector for Bois noir/ Stolbur phytoplasma, Aster yellows (AY) in vineyards, the yellows phytoplasma to Catharantus roseus and potato plants and 16SrI-A phytoplasmas in carrot fields ( Batlle et al. 2000; Drobnjaković et al. 2010; Orenstein et al. 2003; Orenstein et al. 2003).
