Only five DNA barcodes of Japanese leafhoppers have been recorded, although the DNA barcoding method using of a part of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) gene is said to be one of new tools for taxonomic identification. In this study, 63 barcodes under 45 species (15 subfamilies and 37 genera) are newly added to the database of DNA barcodes. Barcodes of Japanese leafhoppers had different COI sequences, and none was shared between species. COI differences between most cicadellid species exceeded those within species.
