status

 

* Russelliana solanicola Tuthill, 1959  

Diagnosis. A description can be found in Serbina and Burckhardt (2017). Russelliana solanicola   differs from other Florida psyllids as indicated in the generic key above.

Distribution. Western South America, adventive in eastern South America ( Serbina et al. 2015).

Host plants. Polyphagous on a least ten families of eudicots in the clade Caryophyllales + asterids ( Serbina et al. 2015).

Comments. Russelliana solanicola   is a significant pest. It is implicated in transmission of plant pathogens in potato ( Chávez et al. 2003, Serbina et al. 2015) and, according to Syfert et al. (2017), it has a high risk of emerging in Florida.
