We determine the limit distribution (as λ→∞) of complex zeros for holomorphic continuations φCλ toGrauert tubes of real eigenfunctions of the Laplacian on a real analytic compact Riemannian manifold (M, g) with ergodic geodesic flow. If {φjk} is an ergodic sequence of eigenfunctions, we prove the weak limit formula the current of integration over the complex zeros and where ∂ is with respect to the adapted complex structure of Lempert-Szöke and Guillemin-Stenzel.
