Rocel V. Yasoña, Sheryl A. Yap

Abstract


Leafhopper specimens were collected using sweep net from 37 to 1000 meters above sea level (masl) and other nearby agricultural sites in Mount Makiling, Laguna, Philippines. This was conducted as a contribution to the study of Cicadellidae (Hemiptera) from the said mountain, which are poorly studied. Specimens loaned from the UPLB Museum of Natural History were also examined. This paper presents the first geographical record of  Cofana lineata (Distant, 1908) in Luzon, which is also a new country record. These additional geographical data were added to the checklist of Cofana Melichar, 1926 from the Philippines. 

Key words:  Cicadellidae, Cofana, Hemiptera, new record, Philippines
