Abstract: The sycamore lace bug,Corythucha ciliata,is an important invasive pest,obligately infesting Platanus spp.trees.This pest,a native species to North America,was introduced to Europe in 1960 s.In China it was first found in Hunan province in 2002,and has spread to Hubei,Shanghai,Shandong,Henan and Beijing,causing heavy infestations.Researchers have found that the sycamore lace bug specifically damaged Platanus spp.trees,causing chlorotic or bronzed foliage and premature senescence of leaves.In addition,this pest has a high capacity to survive and adapt to high and low temperatures.In recent years,the research on pheromones of C.ciliata has gradually attracted people’s attention.Manybioactive molecules and genes associated have been identified,providing a basis for ecological control of this pest.In this article,we reviewed the research progresses of this species,focusing on its biology,damage characteristics,propagation patterns,chemical ecology,environmental adaptability,and prevention and control methods,and brought forward the future research directions of development of integrated pest management technologies for managing this pest so as to provide a reference for researchers in this field.
