The fauna of leaf- and planthoppers of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is presented as distribution atlas in two parts, a text part, and an atlas part with maps for all 388 recorded species. The maps are based on an area-wide survey at a grid base of 5 × 5 km conducted in the years 2002 to 2006, as well as additional data from earlier studies.
The analysis is based on more than 230 000 individuals and gives additional information on ecology, phenology and habitat requirements. Each species is presented by a photo. The analysis of the occurrence wthin the various habitats and the nature reserves of Luxembourg yields suggestions for the protection of leaf- and planthopper diversity.
