A new psyllid pest of California pepper trees was first discovered in Long Beach, California, in July 1984. Since then, the insect has spread rapidly, particularly in coastal areas, and now occurs from San Diego County to the San Francisco Bay region. There are scattered records of its occurrence inland in San Bernardino and Kern counties.
