Interpretive Summary: Leafhoppers cause millions of dollars of damage to U.S. agricultural crops each year. It is important to know the distribution of foreign species that may be introduced to the U.S. A new country record was discovered for a genus of leafhoppers that is able to vector bacterial diseases. This paper reviews the existing literature on the leafhopper genus and gives the new country record. It will be of use to scientists and others interested in protecting US cops from leafhopper pests.
