Abstract:
The psyllids of Psyllidae family are knew from the West and the Center regions of Cameroon. None is published in the South region of this country. From January 2006 to December 2007, the prospections undertaken in the south region of Cameroon permitted to investigate the biodiversity of psyllids of the Psyllidae family. Psyllids were collected in different localities in south region on various host plants. Adult psyllids were captured with a sweep net of 0.5 mm mesh size and an aspirator. Larvae were sampled directly from buds and leaves of the host plant. All specimens were preserved in 70% ethanol. This study documented 35 species belonging to 16 genera and 6 subfamilies: Aphalaroidinae with Yangus genus (5 species); Ciriacreminae with 3 genera, Heteropsylla (1 specie), Ciriacremum (4 species) and Kleiniella (4 species); Diaphorininae with 2 genera, Diaphorina (1 specie) and Epipsylla (2 species); Euphalerinae with 5 genera, Colophorina (1 specie), Euryconus (1 specie) and 3 new genera with have respectively 1 specie; Paurocephalinae with 3 genera, Paurocephala (3 species), Diclidophlebia (6 species) and Syntomoza (1 specie); Psyllinae/Arytaininae with 2 genera, Palaeolindbergiella (2 species) and a new genus with 1 specie. Four genera remain undescribed. All those psyllids were collected in 15 different localities of the South Region of Cameroon. Three species (Ciriacremum sp.2, Kleiniella sp. 4 and Paurocephala sp. 3) were collected in the South region of Cameroon. Any of these species weren’t recorded in the Center and west region of Cameroon. The phenology of the host plants permit us to justify the proliferation period of each species. Host plants belong to 7 families; the Fabaceae constitutes the family with the largest number of associated psyllid species. The damage caused by the psyllids on their host plants were recorded and photographed. The present survey permitted to enrich the biodiversity of the psyllids of the Psyllidae family of Cameroon.
