Tettigometra costulata Fieber, 1865  ( Fig. 10View FIGURES 1–11)

Recorded damage and economic importance in the orchards of Iran: On pear ( Rajabi 1991).

Recorded damage in the orchards of other parts of the world: Not recorded.

Recorded distribution in Iran: Northwest, north, west, central and southeast ( Mozaffarian & Wilson 2011).

Conclusion: Rajabi (1991) mentioned this species in the list of pests of Rosaceous fruit trees after observing a population of the species on pear in the north of Iran. Therefore , pest status of the species needs further study. Although Rajabi (1991) observed large populations on pear in north, no records of economic damage is known from Iran or other parts of the world so the pest status of this species needs to be evaluated.
