scientific name

Psylla phorodendri
status

 

phorodendri (Tuthill, 1939)  

Type locality: USA, Arizona, California.

Host plant: Adults taken from Phoradendron tomentosum ( Burckhardt & Wyniger 2007)   .

Glycaspis Taylor  

brimblecombei Moore, 1964  

Type locality: Australia.

Additional distribution: Introduced in Europe, South America, and USA ( Valente & Hodkinson 2009). Host plant: Several Eucalyptus   spp., including E. camaldulensis   , E. globulus   , E. nitens   , E. blakelyi   , E. brassiana   , E. bridgesiana   , E. camphora   , E. dealbata   , E. diversicolor   , E. sideroxylon   , E. nicholii   , E. lehmannii   , E. rudis   , E. tereticornis   , E. mannifera   , E. maculosa   .

Remarks: First recorded in California in June 1998 ( Gill 1998). This pest is a major   threat to susceptible Eucalyptus   species (in particular E. camaldulensis   , E. rudis   , E. tereticornis   which can experience heavy defoliation) that are grown in urban landscapes, as wind shelters, or as commercial forest species ( Brennan et al. 1999; Brennan et al. 2001 a); common name: red gum lerp psyllid.

Parasitoids and Predators: Psyllaephagus bliteus Riek   (Daane et al. 2005; Dahlsten et al. 2005) released in California as a biocontrol in 2000. Laboratory studies have demonstrated that P. bliteus   can lay eggs in psyllid nymphs of any age, but female parasitoids prefer third and fourth instars ( UC Riverside, CISR; UC Berkeley, CBC). In some cases, generalist predators (e.g., Anthocoris nemoralis   , Hemiptera   : Anthocoridae   ) may interfere with the effectiveness of P. bliteus   to control psyllid populations ( Erbilgin et al. 2004). At least four coccinellid beetles ( Coleoptera   ) and lacewings ( Neuroptera   ) have been recorded feeding on this psyllid ( Erbilgin et al. 2004).

Heteropsylla Crawford  

cubana Crawford, 1914  

Type locality: Cuba.

Additional distribution: Native to Central America, this species has been introduced into many parts of the world and is a now widespread throughout the tropics. Introduced in USA, California, Florida, Hawaii. Host plant: Leucaena glauca   , L. leucocephala   , and other Leucaena   species. Remarks: First recorded in California in 1986 ( Gill 1986, 1992).
