The phylloxera Daktulosphaira vitifoliae (Fitch 1856) (Hemiptera: Phylloxeridae) is one of the most important pests in grapevine cultivation. This specie is distributed in all continents and can attack the plant aerial part and the vine root system. In Brazil, phylloxera has been causing losses in most municipalities from the southern region that produce grape, and there is no evidence of D. vitifoliae in the State of Espirito Santo. The objective of this study was to monitor the occurrence of D. vitifoliae in the grapevine crop in the State of Espirito Santo. Between February and December of 2016, leaves and roots with typical pest lesions were collected from grapevines crops cultivars ‘Niagara Rosada' and ‘Isabel' in different production regions of the state. After analyzing the materials and taxonomic identification, the presence of phylloxera in grapevines was confirmed in Espirito Santo.
