Abstract: Rapid, accurate and timely identification of invasive pest insects, such as, mango leafhoppers, is important and a challenge worldwide. In this regard, DNA barcoding employing a 658 bp fragment of 5 ' region of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I (COI) gene is an effective tool in addressing the above. In the present study, we developed DNA barcodes for five species of mango leaf hoppers, viz., Amritodus atkinsoni, A. brevistylus, Idioscopus clypealis, I. nagpurensis and I. niveosparsus, which were collected from Karnataka, India. Our study will help in providing a rapid, convenient and precise tool for species discrimination in mango leaf hoppers, regardless of their life stages and polymorphism.
