Morphological variation, genetic differentiation and phylogeography of the East Asia cicada Hyalessa maculaticollis (Hemiptera: Cicadidae)
The results reveal that the abundant intraspecific morphological variations are consistent with high levels of genetic divergence in this species, but incongruence between the Morphological variations and genetic divergence is found in a few lineages.
Genetic divergence, population differentiation and phylogeography of the cicada Subpsaltria yangi based on molecular and acoustic data: an example of the early stage of speciation?
Geographical barriers (i.e., the deserts and semi-deserts surrounding the Helan Mountains), possibly coupled with related ecological differences, may have driven population divergence and allopatric speciation in the rare endemic cicada Subpsaltria yangi.
Morphology and identification of the final instar nymphs of three cicadas (Hemiptera, Cicadidae) in Guanzhong Plain, China based on comparative morphometrics
Comparison of morphometrics of the final instar nymphs of three dominant cicada species in Guanzhong Plain, China provides useful characteristics for nymph identification of related species and for further taxonomic and phylogenetic analysis of Cicadoidea.
On the cicada genus Nipponosemia Kato, with description of one new species from China (Hemiptera, Cicadidae)
The cicada genus Nipponosemia Kato is reviewed, including three known species and one new species, and a key to all species of this genus is presented, and information on the biology of Nipp onosemia is provided.
Bacterial diversity of bacteriomes and organs of reproductive, digestive and excretory systems in two cicada species (Hemiptera: Cicadidae)
Bacterial communities in the bacteriomes and organs of reproductive, digestive and excretory systems of two cicada species were investigated using different methods, and the bacterial diversity and distribution patterns of dominant bacteria in different tissues were compared.
Influence of construction and demolition waste on fitness and community structure of cicada nymphs: New bioindicators of soil pollution
Investigation of the biodiversity, community structure, population dynamics and morphology of cicada nymphs in both uncontaminated and contaminated habitats by C&D waste in Guanzhong Plain, China since 2011 indicates that Meimuna mongolica is possibly evolving into the most dominant species in the ecological niche when it competes with other sympatric species, but more researches are needed to establish whether there is a shift in the species composition.

Investigating bacterial communities of salivary glands, bacteriomes, and digestive and reproductive organs and clarified the transovarial transmission of bacteriome-associated symbionts of the mountain-habitat specialist Pycna repanda using integrated methods suggested that “Ca. Hodgkinia” may have split into cytologically different cellular lineages within this cicada species.

Although host selection of two species with unknown ovipositional preference awaits to be confirmed by future field investigation, the proposed integrated functional morphology approach is used to predict that these two species oviposit in dead twigs.
