Abstract
    The distribution of the recently introduced planthopper Prokelisia marginata (van Duzee) in Kent is summarised together with the distribution of its new hostplant, common cord-grass Spartina anglica. The impact of this highly vagile delphacid on saltmarsh communities in the UK is briefly discussed.
