status

 

pyricola (Foerster, 1848)  

Type locality: Europe.

Additional distribution: West Palaearctic to E. Siberia, S. Korea and Japan; introduced in Argentina, Canada, USA. Host plant: Pyrus communis   ; CSCA records for California include nymphs and adults collected from Pyrus calleryana   .

Remarks: This species and several closely related taxa are responsible for considerable economic losses in fruit production via the vectoring of phytoplasmas.

Parasitoids: Several encyrtid primary parasitoids and hyperparasitoids have been recorded from related psyllids ( C. pyri   and C. pyrisuga   ) feeding on pear in Europe ( Sullivan & Volkl 1999) (including, Prionomitus   , Psyllaephagus   , Sectiliclava   , Syrphophagus   , Trechnites   (all as primary), and Pachyneuron   (as secondary)).
