A survey was made by sweep-net during the summer of 1961 to determine the identity and distribution of insects infesting grasses in New York. Insects in the orders Hemiptera and Homoptera were found to be the most abundant, and their identities and distribution are reported herein. A total of 104 species, 53 Hemiptera and 51 Homoptera, was collected. Of these, 16 species of Hemiptera and 17 species of Homoptera are considered "major" species, i.e. those which were collected in 10 (an arbitrarily chosen number) or more of the 57 New York counties surveyed. Answers to the question of whether or not a given species is a definite or potential pest of grasses were obtained in most eases by all extensive review of the literature for each species. A brief discussion of each major species is given.
