The fauna of jumping plant-lice (Hemiptera: Psylloidea) of Serbia is reviewed based on extensive recent field work and previously published data. In total, 63 species are reported, 44 for the first time from the country. The Serbian Psylloidea belong to four families: Calophyidae (1 species), Homotomidae (1 species), Psyllidae (43 species) and Triozidae (18 species). Jumping plant-lice were sampled from 71 plant species from 25 families, of which 63 plants from 21 families were registered as their hosts.
