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. Expand
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. Expand
Transovarial Transmission of Bacteriome-Associated Symbionts in the Cicada Pycna repanda (Hemiptera: Cicadidae)
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. Expand
Comparative morphology of the distal segments of Malpighian tubules in cicadas and spittlebugs, with reference to their functions and evolutionary indications to Cicadomorpha (Hemiptera:
Analysis of the morphology, layout, and ultrastructure of the Malpighian tubules in Cicadomorpha support the major relationships within this infraorder as “Membracoidea + (Cicadoidea-+ Cercopoidea)”. Expand
A remarkable new leafhopper genus and species from Thailand (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Stegelytrinae) with modified legs and ‘hairy’ eggs
Its unusual features, including ‘membracid‐like’ legs and ‘hairy’ eggs, are discussed, and new tarsal sensilla for Cicadellidae are described. Expand
Morphology and Ultrastructure of the Salivary Glands of the Spittlebug Lepyronia coleopterata (L.) (Hemiptera: Aphrophoridae)
It is found that the salivary glands in Lepyronia coleopterata are paired structures and consist of principal and accessory glands, which indicate either different materials are synthesized or these materials undergo a process of maturation. Expand
A review of the morphologically diverse leafhopper subfamily Stegelytrinae (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae) with description of new taxa
The first stegelytrine is recorded east of Wallace's and Weber's lines, extending the distribution of the subfamily outside the Oriental and Palaearctic regions. Expand
Morphological variation versus genetic divergence: a taxonomic implication for Mogannia species (Cicadidae: Cicadinae)
Molecular data of mitochondrial COI and Cytb sequences were employed to test the level of variation and phylogeny of Mogannia variants and indicated that some morphological characters, especially the wing pattern and body colouration, and even the number of apical processes of the aedeagus in a couple of related species, must be used with great caution in delimiting cicada species and their relatives.

On the identity of Chunra gigantea Distant (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae), the largest member of the arboreal leafhopper subfamily Idiocerinae
Kuchingella Wei & Webb, gen. n. is established in the leafhopper tribe Megipocerini of the subfamily Idiocerinae, with Chunra gigantea Distant as its type species, based on the description of theExpand
A new species of Cicadatra Kolenati, 1857 from China, with primary phylogenetic analyses of the tribe Cicadatrini (Hemiptera: Cicadidae).
The monophyly of Cicadatrini is supported, and Cicadatsini is more allied to the outgroup Cicadetta of the subfamily Cicadettinae (= Tibicininae auct.) from TNT and WinClada analyses. Expand
