Abstract

The two counties that encompass coastal Alabama were divided into 25 plots, approximately 18 × 16 kilometers in size and surveyed using a single ethanol supplied Malaise trap in each plot. Traps were operated for 1-week intervals once a month from February 2004 through January 2005. Selection of trapping stations was based on sampling as wide a variety of landscape types as possible. Sites ranged from relatively undisturbed secondary forests to agriculturally active lands. A total of 44 species from eight families of Fulgoroidea (Acanaloniidae, Achilidae, Cixiidae, Derbidae, Delphacidae, Dictyopharidae, Flatidae, and Issidae) were collected. Thirty-four of these species were new state records, indicating that the planthopper fauna of Alabama is poorly known.
