The paper presents the results of the authors’ inventory of planthopper and leafhopper (former Auchenorrhyncha) species collected in the vicinity of Warsaw by the royal cartographer Karol de Perthées and described during his stay in Vilnius at the turn of 1802, on the basis of the drawings and descriptions included in his unpublished manuscript, entitled Volume I. In total, 38 species and 9 colour forms were identified, of which 23 can be regarded as correctly named by Perthées. Most of the species represent suborder Cicadomorpha (33), and only 5 belong to suborder Fulgoromorpha. This is the first documented historical information on the planthopper and leafhopper fauna of Poland
