Stictocephala bisonia Kopp et Yonke, 1977 

Recorded damage and economic importance in the orchards of Iran: Non significant damage on fruit trees ( Esmaiili 1984; Rajabi 1991).

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

Recorded distribution in Iran: South slope of central Alborz 

Conclusion: Both recordsof the species as pest ( Esmaiili 1984 and Rajabi 1991) were under the name “ Ceresa bubalus Fabricius, 1794  ”. These authors noted a lack of significant damage caused by the species suggested there is no necessity of any control method. In addition, the recorded distribution of the species is very limited and the reason of recording the species as ‘pest’ is not clear. Therefore, the pest status of the species needs further study.
