First record of Ricania speculum (Walker, 1851) (Hemiptera Ricaniidae) from Veneto, Piedmont and Latium regions and new host plants
REDIA 101, 197-200
Abstract: The distribution of Ricania speculum (Walker, 1851) (Hemiptera Fulgoromorpha Ricaniidae) in Italy was updated and the species was recorded for the first time in Veneto (2017), Piedmont (2018) and Latium (2018) regions. The occurrence of this species in Sardinia, previously recorded, is here excluded. Moreover, 33 new host plants belonging to 29 families resulted to be attacked by this alien invasive species confirming its outstanding polyphagy.
