Abstract Formiscurra atlas sp. nov. is described from southwestern Ethiopia. It represents the first record of the genus Formiscurra Gnezdilov & Viraktamath, 2011 (Hemiptera: Fulgoroidea: Caliscelidae) from Africa. The relationships of Formiscurra to other African taxa of Caliscelidae as well as myrmecomorphy in Auchenorrhyncha are discussed. A photograph of a live specimen of Formiscurra indicus Gnezdilov & Viraktamath, 2011 and an identification key to both species are given.
