For a long time, Dutch entomologists showed limited interest in jumping plant lice (or psyllids). The most recent species list of the Netherlands dates back to 1926. Since then only a few short papers have appeared. This is surprising as some species are important agricultural pests. The pear psyllid causes harvest loss worth several tens of million euros every year. We critically checked previous reports on Dutch psyllids. Twenty-seven species are reported here for the first time from the Netherlands and 13 species are omitted from the list. This brings the number of confirmed, established psyllid species to 69.
