The spotted lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula) is a planthopper which is native to China, India, and Vietnam, but has also spread to Korea around 2006. It was detected in Pennsylvania in 2014, and has since been found to have confirmed populations in Delaware, New Jersey and Virginia. Its preferred host is tree-of-heaven (Ailanthus altissima), but it is known to feed on a wide range of plants.
Here is a listing of some of the many plants on which spotted lanternfly has been found feeding. Please keep in mind that this is not a complete listing of plants that could be affected, because there is still research being done.
