Aphrophora alni (Fallen, 1805)  ( Figs 20 and 21a –bView FIGURES 20–25)

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

Recorded damage in the orchards of other parts of the world: A potential vector for the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa  which infests olive trees in New Zealand (Anonymous 2013).

Recorded distribution in Iran: North and centre ( Mozaffarian & Wilson 2015).

Conclusion: The role of the species in transmitting Xylella fastidiosa  needs to be evaluated in Iran.
