Abstract

Weeping lovegrass (Eragrostis curvula (Schrad.) Nees; Poaceae), an African species planted in the southern United States for erosion control and forage, has been colonized by a diversity of native planthoppers. Collecting data and previously recorded host plants are provided for 26 species of Fulgoroidea in 12 genera and 5 families; nymphs of 13 fulgoroid species were observed. New state records are given for 16 planthopper species; 15 planthopper species are considered little-known or rarely collected.
