An updated checklist of jumping plant lice (Hemiptera: Psylloidea) of Pakistan

Abstract :

The present paper comprises an updated checklist of the jumping plant lice of Pakistan. This includes 8 extant families with 30 valid psyllid species in 20 genera. One species recorded for the first time: Calophya maculata (Mathur, 1975). Three species Pauropsylla depressa Crawford, 1912, Tenaphalara acutipennis Kuwayama, 1908 and Euphyllura olivina (Costa, 1839) have been documented as new distributional record from Pothwar region of Pakistan. Images of new faunal record are provided. General distribution with valid host plant of each species is included. Distribution map of newly recorded species is added. The list provides synthesis of regional taxonomical work published until now and will also be proved as baseline for further future studies.
