Erythroneura comes (Say, 1825) 

Recorded damage and economic importance in the orchards of Iran: A pest on grapevine and other fruit trees ( Behdad 1991; Esmaili 1984).

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

Recorded distribution in Iran: South of Central Alborz Mountain ( Mozaffarian & Wilson 2016). 

Conclusion: The species is a Nearctic species and the records may be due to a misidentification ( Mozaffarian & Wilson 2016).

Frutioidia (Frutioidia) bisignata (Mulstant et Rey, 1855)  ( Figs 43View FIGURES 26–45 and 59a –cView FIGURES 45–60)

Recorded damage and economic importance in the orchards of Iran: Mild and sometimes significant damage on Poaceae  . The phytoplasma responsible for Almond Witches’ broom disease could not be transmitted by this insect ( Esmaili 1984; Rajabi 1991, Taghizadeh & Salehi 2002; Koliayee et al. 2012).

Recorded damage in the orchards of other parts of the world: A pest on hazelnut in Europe and a potential pest in olive orchards in Turkey ( Snare 2006; Bozbuga & Elekcioglu 2008).

Recorded distribution in Iran: Northwest and centre ( Mozaffarian & Wilson 2016).

Conclusion: Modarres Awal (1994) mentioned the name: “ Erythroneura albisignata  ” as a synonym with Z. bisignata  which is the synonym of the present species. It has been repeated in some agricultural websites consequently as a pest on Poaceae  . However, this is not a valid name. The economic injury level caused by the species is unclear.
