Abstract

This paper present two species of Typhlocybinae (Hemiptera, Cicadellidae) new to Norway, Zonocyba bifasciata (Boheman, 1852) and Zyginella pulchra Löw, 1885. Both species are reported from plant importers and from established populations in Norway. We argue that both species have been introduced into Norway as hitchhikers on garden plants, but that we cannot rule out the possibility of a simultaneously range expansion into Norway from Sweden.
