The study was carried out in the region of Biskra (Sahara, Algeria) in order to know the plants able to be hosted by tomato leafminer (Tuta absoluta Meyrick 1917) invasive species in Algeria. Ten plants were identified: spontaneous and cultivated. These plants belong to three families: Solanaceae, Amaranthaceae and Fabaceae. It is important to note that including the found plants, four species were not reported as plant hosts of this pest (Chenopodium rubrum L., Chenopodium bonus-henricus L., Spinacia oleracea L. & Beta vulgaris L.).
