The andromeda lace bug is a pest insect on plants of the genus ''Pieris'', especially ''Pieris japonica'', the Japanese andromeda. It originated in Japan with its host plant but has since been introduced to other areas of the globe. At least one ''Pieris'' species, ''Pieris floribunda'', is resistant to the bug.

Stephanitis takeyai is native to Japan, where it was described as Tingis globulifera Matsumura 1905 (Drake and Ruhoff 1965).
