status

 

Empoasca fabae (Harris, 1841) 

Recorded damage and economic importance in the orchards of Iran: A pest on apple, pear, grapevine ( Esmaili 1984; Rajabi 1991). Rajabi (1991) believes it doesn’t have any economic importance.

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

Recorded distribution in Iran: Southern slope of Alborz Mountain (Tehran) ( Mozaffarian & Wilson 2016).

Conclusion: The confirmed distribution of the species is limited to the New World; thus previous Iranian records of this species may be based on misidentifications ( Mozaffarian & Wilson 2016).
