Neoaliturus fenestratus  (Herrich- Schäffer, 1834) ( Figs 32View FIGURES 26–45 and 50View FIGURES 45–60)

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

Recorded damage in the orchards of other parts of the world: A phytoplasma vector which is commonly found in vineyards and may play a role in transferring Grapevine Yellows (GY), Bois noir/ Stolbur and Aster yellows (AY) ( Batlle et al. 2000; Orenstein et al. 2003; Bosco et al. 2008; Landi et al. 2013; Minuz et al. 2013).

Recorded distribution in Iran: Southern slopes of Alborz to south and southwest ( Mozaffarian & Wilson 2016).

Conclusion: The vector status of N. fenestratus  needs further study in Iran. Dehghan et al. 2012 showed transmission of Lettuce Phyllody (LP) by this species.
