The prune leafhopper, Typhlocyba prunicola Edwds, is a common pest of prunes in California, but it was not recognized until Oman (1948) first recorded it from prunes in California. Heagele (1980) had previously reported the species from prunes in Oregon and Idaho. Since the biology of this species was not known, studies were begun in California during the latter part of 1952.
