A new species of the genus Cicadatra Kolenati, 1857, C. hei sp. nov., from Sichuan Province, China is described. A key to the species of Cicadatra from China is provided. Morphological characters for 9 taxa of the tribe Cicadatrini and for 3 outgroup taxa are examined to present the first phylogenetic reconstruction within the Cicadatrini. The monophyly of Cicadatrini is supported, and Cicadatrini is more allied to the outgroup Cicadetta of the subfamily Cicadettinae (= Tibicininae auct.) from… Expand
A molecular phylogeny of the cicadas (Hemiptera: Cicadidae) with a review of tribe and subfamily classification.
The subfamily Cicadinae, historically defined by the presence of timbal covers, is weakly supported in the molecular tree, and high taxonomic rank is not supported for several earlier clades based on unique morphology associated with sound production. Expand
The molecular systematics and diversification of a taxonomically unstable group of Asian cicada tribes related to Cicadini Latreille, 1802 (Hemiptera : Cicadidae)
The first focused molecular phylogeny of this clade is presented, including ~60 described genera, and it is estimated that the radiation began in the middle Cenozoic Era, possibly as recently as the early Miocene. Expand


Cicadas (Hemiptera: Cicadidae) of Laos, with the description of four new genera and two new species
The first faunal checklist for the family Cicadidae (Insecta: Hemiptera) in Laos, comprising 60 species belonging to 33 genera, is provided, with transfers of many species from one genus to another made. Expand
Systematic revision of the genus Psithyristria Stål (Hemiptera: Cicadidae) with seven new species and a molecular phylogeny of the genus and higher taxa
The molecular phylogenetic analyses of Psithyristria and putatively related taxa showed some unexpected generic relationships, leading to changes in higher taxonomic placement for a number of Asian cicada genera. Expand
An appraisal of the higher classification of cicadas (Hemiptera: Cicadoidea) with special reference to the Australian fauna
A cladistic analysis of generic relationships has been used to test the validity of currently held views on family and subfamily groupings, based upon an exhaustive study of nymphal and adult morphology, including both external and internal adult structures. Expand

The cicada fauna of Pakistan now comprises of a total of 29 species from 13 genera, five tribes and three subfamilies, and the new records and new species represent a 61% increase in faunal diversity. Expand
Description of a new genus and species of the tribe Dundubiini (Hemiptera: Cicadidae: Cicadinae) from India, with taxonomic notes on Dundubiini including the description of two new subtribes
ABSTRACT A new cicada genus and species, Zaphsa princeps n. gen., n. sp., is described from India. Four subtribes, Dundubiina Atkinson, 1886, Megapomponiina Lee n. subtr., Orientopsaltriina Lee n.Expand
A Checklist of Cicadidae (Insecta: Hemiptera) from Vietnam, with Some Taxonomic Remarks
This paper provides the first checklist of Cicadidae (Hemiptera) from Vietnam, comprising 111 species belonging to 36 genera, and Cryptotympana corvus is removed from the Vietnamese fauna because this record is thought to have been based on a misidentification. Expand
Cicadatra pazukii, a new cicada species, with an identification key to the species of Cicadatra in Iran (Hemiptera: Cicadidae)
The morphological description of a new species of cicadas is presented, collected from Iran, also providing the diagnosis of the new species with closely related species, and an identification key for the Cicadatra species of Iran is submitted. Expand
A new species of the cicada genus Cicadatra Kolenati, 1857 (Hemiptera, Cicadidae) from Pakistan with a key to the known species of Pakistani Cicadatra
Abstract A new species of cicada, Cicadatra ziaratica sp. n., is described from Pakistan. Male genitalia, timbal and opercula are described and illustrated as important diagnostic characters.Expand
A review of the genera of Australian cicadas (Hemiptera: Cicadoidea)
All 81 genera currently recognised as occurring in Australia are redefined using a common suite of characters identified as meaningful at generic level, and three genera are removed from the fauna of Australia. Expand
