Abstract

The American palm cixiid, Haplaxius crudus (Van Duzee), feeds on the leaves of palms and has been implicated as a vector of 16SrIV phytoplasmas, including lethal yellowing disease. In North America, the American palm cixiid was previously known to occur in Florida and Texas. Here, the first report of this species from Mississippi is presented.
