      Intraspecific acoustic communication via substrate vibrations is common in Hemiptera. Pear psyllids are economically important as vectors of pear decline phytoplasmas. Their mating behaviour has not been previously studied. We recorded the first acoustic signals emitted by male C. pyri. Further studies will clarifiy the importance of these signals for mate finding and mate choice in this pest species.
