Host: flue-cured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum (flue-cured type)
Description: Young (nymphs) are similar to adults but are smaller and lack wings. Eggs are barrel-shaped and laid in clusters on the underside of leaves. Both adults and nymphs suck plant juices through beak-like mouthparts. They will attack all plant parts but prefer young, tender growth. This may cause one or more leaves to wilt and flop over, similar to sunscald.
