Evidence for co-evolution of leafhoppers in the genus Dalbulus (Cicadellidae: Homoptera) with maize and its ancestors.
Dalbulus tripsacoides is morphologically the most primitive member of the genus Dalbulus, supporting the hypothesis that leafhoppers of the species DalBulus coevolved with maize from its Tripsacum ancestors and speculation that the DalbulUS species and the corn stunt spiroplasma, maize bushy stunt mycoplasma and maize rayado fino virus have influenced the speciation and distribution of maize.
