ABSTRACT
The Ligurian leafhopper (Eupteryx decemnotata Rey 1891) has been recorded for the first time in Poland, in a commercial greenhouse in Warsaw. Individuals were collected from rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L.). Intense feeding of this species caused serious damage in the cultivation of rosemary. For this reason, the range extension of this species must be monitored.
