Many Authors assume that the vector of Flavescence dorée phytoplasma spread to Europe mainly due to the trade of propagating material infested with the overwintering eggs (Alma, 2004; Steffek et al., 2007). This hypothesis is supported by two main considerations: first of all invasive European populations of the cicadellid are characterized by low levels of genetic diversity and differentiation (Santoni et al., 2004; Bertin et al., 2007; Papura et al., 2007); furthermore the leafhopper tends to not disperse over long distances (Lessio & Alma, 2004, 2006).

The objective of the study is the evaluation of the presence and distribution of S. titanus eggs on grapevine propagation plant material (Bagnoli & Gargani, 2010)
