Host plants and seasonal presence of Dictyophara europaea in the vineyard agro-ecosystem

  title={Host plants and seasonal presence of Dictyophara europaea in the vineyard agro-ecosystem},
  author={Federico Lessio and Alberto Alma and Carlo Vidano},
Seasonal presence and host plants of Dictyophara europaea (L.), a candidate vector of phytoplasmas to grapevine, were studied in Piedmont during 2006 in different vine growing regions. Sampling consisted in net sweeping on different candidate host plants, and captures of adults with yellow sticky traps placed on grapevine. D. europaea nymphs and adults were collected on many weeds, showing how this planthopper should be considered a polyphagous species, although Amaranthus retroflexus L. and…

Dictyophara europaea (Hemiptera: Fulgoromorpha: Dictyopharidae): description of immatures, biology and host plant associations
The aims of this study were to investigate the seasonal occurrence, host plant associations, oviposition behaviour and immature stages of this widespread planthopper of economic importance, and provide data showing that D. europaea has five instars with one generation per year and that it overwinters in the egg stage.
Vector Role of Cixiids and Other Planthopper Species
Role of Dictyophara europaea and planthopper putative vectors of diverse genera harboring phylogenetically diverse phytoplasma groups are also described.
Influence of foraging strip crops on the presence of leafhoppers and planthoppers associated to grapevines ’ phytoplasmas
The possible colonization of vineyards by leafhoppers, planthoppers and their allies, known or suspected vectors of phytoplasmas to vines, living on adjacent foraging strip crops seeded for
Wolbachia infection in natural populations of Dictyophara europaea, an alternative vector of grapevine Flavescence dorée phytoplasma: effects and interactions
Wolbachia confers protection against FDp or is in competition with FDp according to the observed correlations: low FDp-infected vector populations are infected with Wolbachia and vice versa.
Molecular characteristics of phytoplasmas associated with Flavescence dorée in clematis and grapevine and preliminary results on the role of Dictyophara europaea as a vector.
Preliminary transmission experiments showed that this species is able to transmit the FD phytoplasma from clematis to grapevine, and could constitute a risk for FD epidemics in the European viticultural regions.
Molecular characteristics of phytoplasmas associated with Flavescence dorée in clematis and grapevine and preliminary results on the role of Dictyophara europaea as a vector
A survey was conducted over several years in Italy and the Balkans in order to gain an understanding of the relationship between the Flavescence dorée (FD) phytoplasma isolates found in clematis and
Insects as Phytoplasma Vectors: Ecological and Epidemiological Aspects
The different aspects involved in the transmission of phytoplasmas by insect vectors (leafhoppers, planthoppers, and psyllids) are presented from an ecological point of view. The epidemiology of
Development, Spatial Distribution, and Presence on Grapevine of Nymphs of Orientus ishidae (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae), a New Vector of Flavescence Dorée Phytoplasmas
Embryonic and post-embryonic development, spatial distribution, and relationships with grapevine of nymphs were studied under field and laboratory conditions and Taylor's Power Law was applied to assess the aggregation coefficient of early- and late- life instars on leaves and shoots of host plants.
Acquisition of Flavescence Dorée Phytoplasma by Scaphoideus titanus Ball from Different Grapevine Varieties
Although acquisition efficiency depends on grapevine variety and on FDP load in the plant, even varieties supporting low FDP multiplication can be highly susceptible and good sources for vector infection, while poorly susceptible varieties may host high phytoplasma loads.
Development , spatial distribution and presence on grapevine of nymphs of 1 Orientus ishidae ( Matsumura ) , a new vector of Flavescence dorée phytoplasmas
8 Orientus ishidae (Matsumura) (Cicadellidae: Deltocephalinae) is an Asian species now widespread 9 in Europe, and a vector of 16SrV phytoplasmas agents of grapevine Flavescence dorée (FDP). 10


Occurrence, Distribution and Epidemiology of Grapevine Yellows in Spain
An epidemiological study was carried out in two BN-affected plots of two regions from 1994 to 1997, with the evaluation of potential vectors and of host plants.
Detection of a Phytoplasma Associated with Grapevine Flavescence dorée in Clematis vitalba
Only samples of Clematis vitalba were found to be infected with phytoplasmas, and the isolate identified in the clematis is the same as the FD-C phy toplasma found in grapevine in north-east Italy.
