Abstract:In Utah during the past three years, 2659 lizards have been collected and their stomachs examined. Of 1573 Uta stansburiana stansburiana taken among host plants of the beet leafhopper, 915 stomachs contained a total of 9322 specimens of Eutettix tenellus (Baker). Of 213 Sceloporus graciosus graciosus taken among host plants of tenellus, 59 stomachs contained 239 specimens of this pest. Other lizard species in which one or more specimens of tenellus were found include S. elongatus, Phrynosoma douglassii ornatissimum, P. platyrhinos, and Eumeces skiltonianus.
