Abstract

Cameroonian psyllids members of the Carsidaridae family are revised. Six species are recognized within this family including three known species, two newly described species; one species remain undescribed because the material is not sufficient. The newly described species are Carsidara camerunensis sp.n., psyllid of Sterculia tragacantha and Mesohomotoma njinei sp.n., psyllid of Desplatsia dewevrei. Adults and fifth instars’ larvae of the five Carsidaridae species are diagnosed and illustrated. The host plants of the five described species belong in Malvaceae family. The psyllid outbreak period of each species depends on the availability of young leaves on host plants. Then, the population dynamic of each species depends mainly on the phenology of the host plant which depends of climatic factors.
