Biology of the plum and peach leafhopper, Macropsis trimaculata



Biology of the plum and peach leafhopper, Macropsis trimaculata



Ann Rept Ent Soc Ontario 68: 6-12



M. trimaculata, the vector of peach yellows and little peach, has been reported in Canada from the provinces of Ontario and Quebec, and in the U. S. from Maine westward to Colorado and as far south as Virginia. Wild plum (Prunus americana) is the chief host, and it has been reported also from P. angustifolia, P. munsoniana, P. domestica, P. salicina, P. simonii, and P. armeniaca. The eggs, nymphs and adults are descr. There is only one generation a year in the latitude of Yonkers, New York, with the egg period extending from July to the following May, and the period of nymphal emergence from May 25 to June 16-20. Under field conditions the minimum nymphal period was 21 days, and the maximum 35 days. Constant temp. conditions (20[degree]C) extend the nymphal period to a minimum of 38 days and a max. of 74 days. The $? lay their eggs during July and Aug.
