In the year 2016, two exotic invasive species of Auchenorrhyncha, the Asian leafhopper Orientus ishidae (Matsumura) (Cicadellidae) and the Nearctic planthopper Acanalonia conica (Say) (Acanaloniidae) were recorded for the first time in Romania. A number of 63 adult specimens of O. ishidae and 21 adult specimens of A. conica were trapped from July until September, using yellow sticky traps placed on cherry and apple orchards, common hawthorn and Chinese date trees in Bucharest (southern Romania), namely in northern area of the city in the fields of some research units, and in central area in the Botanical Garden 'D.Brândză'. Therefore, it is very important to know their further spreading and population density in our country in the near future, in order to evaluate their pest potential to crops, mainly those of economic importance, such as orchards, grapevine and ornamentals.
