The  Rhododendron  leafhopper Graphocephala  fennahi Young,  1977  (Hemiptera,  Cicadellidae)  is presented new to Norway. Additional Norwegian records on the fungus Seifertia azaleae (Peck) Partr. & Morgan-Jones (Ascomycota, Dothideomycetes) causing the fungal disease known as bud blast that kills flower buds on Rhododendron L. spp. are given. Their biology and recent range expansion, and the ability of G. fennahi to vector S. azaleae is reviewed.
