Abstract

Based on recent collecting and an examination of museum specimens, at least 89 treehopper species (Hemiptera: Membracidae) occur in North Carolina, of which 26 species represent new state records. The presence of 13 species previously recorded from North Carolina could not be verified based on available material. Three previous North Carolina records were found to be based on misidentifications. The known distribution (by county) and host plants in North Carolina are given for each species. Photographs of representative taxa and a host plant index are included. Stictocephala bisonia Kopp and Yonke is reinstated as a valid name (and not a junior synonym of Ceresa alta Walker).
