Jumping Plant-louse of the Genus Pseudoeriopsylla (Hemiptera-Psylloïdea-Homotomidae), Pest of Moraceae from Cameroon

In Cameroon, four species of Pseudoeriopsylla are known: P. laingi, P. etoundii, P. bitomi and P. mpoamei. The genus Pseudoeriopsylla is exclusively African and is distinguished by the presence of a pterostigma on the forewing and the absence of a costal split. In 1957, Eastop caught one species of P. laingi in a yellow trap in Bamenda (North-West) and it is not redescribed here. The morphological features of the three described species from Cameroon are revealed in this work. The leaves and young buds of Ficus spp. feed on these insects.
