The sycamore lace bug is considered as being widespread in Luxembourg. The first time the species was observed in Luxembourg was in 2010 in Wasserbillig. It was found by Svenja Christian. The article by Schneider & Christian (2013) lists 14 localities where the species occurred in 2012 while 19 observations are documented in the Recorder database (26/01/2018).

C. ciliata can cause considerable damage to its plane tree hosts during the growing season resulting in premature leaf abscission, leaving the trees partially or completely defoliated.

Risk assessment

ISEIA protocol: C3 (3+1+1+1) (Ries et al. 2017: 68).
