Generic revision of the New World tribe Hoplophorionini (Hemiptera: Membracidae: Membracinae)
A phylogenetic analysis of 23 hoplophorionine species produced 9 minimal‐length cladograms that were similar in many respects, and Potnia Stål appears to have retained the greatest number of ancestral features.
Morphology‐based phylogeny of the treehopper family Membracidae (Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha: Membracoidea)
A parsimony‐based phylogenetic analysis of eighty‐three morphological characters of adults and immatures of seventy representatives of the tribes and subfamilies of Membracidae and two outgroup taxa
Validity of Homalodisca and of H. vitripennis as the Name for Glassy-Winged Sharpshooter (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Cicadellinae)
Abstract A male of Tettigonia vitripennis Germar—deposited in the recently rediscovered Germar Hemiptera collection, in the Ivan Franko National University (Ukraine)—is designated as the lectotype
Some new generic names in the Cicadellidae (Hemiptera: Deltocephalinae, Selenocephalinae)
The new tribe Dwightlini is proposed to replace Dwightiini, and the new generic names circumscribe 27 valid species, all of which, except three in the preoccupied subgenera, are here proposed in new combinations.
Reappraisal of the neotropical treehopper genus Eunusa fonseca (Homoptera: Membracidae), with ecological notes
Unusual features of Eunusa, with respect to other genera of the Membracini, include the free Cu vein of the hind wing, the blade-shaped, serrate second valvula of the female, and the bifurcate process of the aedeagal atrium of the male.
A new genus, Smilirhexia, of Smiliini (Hemiptera, Membracidae) from Costa Rica
Smilirhexia naranja, gen. n. and sp. n., is described from Central America, the southern limit of the tribe Smiliini, and represents a strong divergence from the morphology of the oak-feeding genera
Review of the neotropical leafhopper genus Chlorogonalia (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Cicadellinae), with notes on the genus Caldwelliola
Species of both genera are possible vectors of the bacterium Xylella fastidiosa in coffee; Caldwelliola caucana has been directly implicated as a vector of the crespera disease in Colombia.
