- We present the first records of six fulgoroid species in Texas. Tagosodes wallacei (Muir and Giffard, 1924) (Delphacidae) is recorded from Texas (new state record), Belize, Honduras, and Ecuador (new country records). Delphacodes puella (Van Duzee, 1897) (Delphacidae), Pareuidella magnistyla (Crawford, 1914) (Delphacidae), Nilaparvata wolcotti Muir and Giffard, 1924 (Delphacidae), and Asarcopus palmarum Horvath, 1921 (Caliscelidae) are recorded from Texas (new state records). Also, a Bruchomorpha species (Caliscelidae) is reported from Texas that is either B. costaricensis Schmidt, 1927 or an undescribed species. Distributional commentary is provided for the aforementioned species, as well as Isodelphax basivitta (Van Duzee, 1909).
