D i s t r i b u t i o n: Corythucha ciliata   is a species of Nearctic origin, native in the USA (from Maine and Florida to Colorado) and Canada (Onatrio, Quebec) (DRAKE & RUHOFF 1956, PÉRICART 1983, FROESCHNER 1988). In 1964, it was unintentionaly introduced to Padua in northern Italy ( SERVADEI 1966). Subsequently, it was found in Croatia in 1970 (MACELJSKI & BALARIN 1972a), in Slovenia in 1972 (MACELJSKI & BALARIN 1972b), in Serbia in 1973 (TOMIĆ & MIHAJLOVIĆ 1974), in France in 1974-1976 ( D’AGUILAR et al. 1977), in Switzerland in 1975 ( PÉRICART 1983, HOFFMANN 1978, HEISS 1995), in Hungary in 1976 (JASINKA & BOZSITS 1977), in Spain in 1980 ( GIL SOTRES & MANSILLA VAZQUEZ 1981, RIBES 1980), in Austria in 1982 ( MILDNER 1983, HEISS 1995), in Germany in 1984 ( HOPP 1984), in Bulgaria in 1987 ( JOSIFOV 1990), in Greece in 1988 (TZANATAKIS 1988), in Portugal in 1994 ( HOFFMANN 1996), in the Czech Republic in 1995 (STEHLÍK 1977), and in England in 2006 (MALUMPHY & REID 2006). It is also known from Slovakia ( STEHLÍK 1997, KMENT & BRYJA 2001) and Montenegro ( PROTIĆ 1998). In 1996, the occurrence of C. ciliata   in Krasnodar region of southwestern Russia was confirmed ( VOIGT 2001, KALINKIN et al. 2002). Outside Europe, it was also introduced to Chile ( PRADO 1990), Korea ( CHUNG et al. 1996), Japan (TOKIHIRA et al. 2003), and southern China (Hunan province) ( STREITO 2006). Corythucha ciliata   currently reaches its northernmost limit in Europe in northern France ( HOFFMANN 2001), northern Germany (Hesse – BURGHARDT 1999, North Rhine – HOFFMANN 2003) and Bohemia ( Czech Republic) (K. Hradil, pers. comm.). The record from Portugal was omitted in Palaearctic catalogue by PÉRICART & GOLUB (1996) as well as in other papers dealing with this invasive species. C o n f i r m e d o c c u r - r e n c e i n P o r t u g a l.

H o s t p l a n t s: In North America, C. ciliata   is trophically bound primarilly to

various species of plane-trees ( Platanus occidentalis   , P. wrighti, P. racemosa   ) ( Platanaceae   ), but it was also found (probably accidentaly) on other trees and shrubs – Fraxinus spp. ( Oleaceae   ), Carya ovata   ( Juglandaceae   ), Broussonetia papyrifera   ( Moraceae   ), Chamaedaphne sp. ( Ericaceae   ), Quercus laurifolia   ( Fagaceae   ), and Liquidambar styraciflua ( Hamamelidaceae   ) (DRAKE & RUHOFF 1956, FROESCHNER 1988, STEHLÍK 1997, HALBERT & MEEKER 1998). In Europe, it lives on Platanus occidentalis   , P. ✕ hispanica (= P. ✕ acerifolia) and native P. orientalis   (MACELJSKI & BALARIN 1972b, HEISS 1995, KALINKIN et al. 2002). Various aspects of the European populations were studied in several papers (see e.g., MACELJSKI & BALARIN 1972b, PÉRICART 1977, STEHLÍK 1997, KALINKIN et al. 2002, ÖSZI et al. 2005).
