A rotary flight trap was used once a week to sample homopterans associated with coconut and cabbage palm plantings from October 1975 to September 1976. The samples were funher divided into day and night, high and low. Myndus crudus Van Duzee and Protalebrella brasiliensis (Baker) were collected more often in the cabbage palm planting than in the coconut planting in the low-net samples. In day samples, M. crudus was more frequent in the cabbage palm planting than in the coconut planting, whereas Micrutalis malleifera Fowler was more frequent in the coconut planting. In night samples, Graminella spp. and M. crudus were collected more frequently in the cabbage palm planting than in coconut planting. From 1 January to 30 March 1976, M. crudus was more frequent in the cabbage palm planting than in coconut planting. From 1 April to 30 June Delphacodes propinqua (Fieber) was collected more frequently in the coconut planting than in cabbage palm planting. During the period of 1 July to 30 September Graminella spp. were more frequent in the cabbage palm planting, but Balclutha spp. were more frequent in the coconut planting.
