The history of cicada family classification is reviewed and the current status of all previously proposed families and subfamilies summarized. All tribal rankings associated with the Australian fauna are similarly documented. A cladistic analysis of generic relationships has been used to test the validity of currently held views on family and subfamily groupings. The analysis has been based upon an exhaustive study of nymphal and adult morphology, including both external and internal adult… 
A molecular phylogeny of the cicadas (Hemiptera: Cicadidae) with a review of tribe and subfamily classification.
TLDR
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.
A new species of Cicadatra Kolenati, 1857 from China, with primary phylogenetic analyses of the tribe Cicadatrini (Hemiptera: Cicadidae).
TLDR
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.
Cicadas (Hemiptera: Cicadidae) of Laos, with the description of four new genera and two new species
TLDR
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.
Checklist of the cicadas of French Guiana including new records and the description of nine new species (Insecta, Hemiptera, Cicadoidea, Cicadidae)
TLDR
In total, the cicada fauna of French Guiana is increased by 64.2%, with endemism determined to be 34%.
Comparative morphology of ovipositor in cicadas (Hemiptera: Cicadidae), with considerations on their taxonomic significance
TLDR
The results show that the morphology of gonapophyses can be adopted in cicada taxonomy at both higher and species levels, and some characters may be promising for phylogenetic analysis of Cicadidae.
Phylogeny for the tribe Thophini (Cicadoidea: Cicadidae) with the description of a new subspecies of Thopha sessiliba Distant from Western Australia
TLDR
Molecular evidence is presented showing that western T. sessiliba are a separate evolutionary lineage but insufficiently distinguished to warrant species status although, in conjunction with their striking colour difference and geographic isolation, worthy of subspecific status.
Descriptions of two new genera and species of Cicadidae (Hemiptera) from India with some notes on tribal classification
Two new cicada genera and species, Paratanna parata gen. et sp. n. and Subtibicina tigris gen. et sp. n., are described from India. Paratanna gen. n. is closely related to Tanna Distant, 1905 and is
A historical overview of the classification of the Neotropical tribe Zammarini (Hemiptera, Cicadidae) with a key to genera
An overview is given of the past century’s confusions concerning some key characters within this Neotropical cicada tribe. Th e limits of the genera Zammara and Orellana have been redefi ned and a
Generic redescription, two new species, and a key to the species of the cicada genus Ariasa Distant, 1905 with the description of a new genus (Hemiptera: Cicadidae: Cicadinae: Fidicinini).
TLDR
The cicada genus Ariasa Distant, 1905 is redescribed and the new genus Cracenpsaltria n.
Talcopsaltriini, a new tribe for a new genus and species of Australian cicada (Hemiptera: Cicadoidea: Cicadidae)
A new tribe, Talcopsaltriini, subfamily Cicadinae, is described to accommodate Talcopsaltria olivei, n.gen., n.sp. a species recorded from Cape York Peninsula, Queensland. Relationships of the

The systematic position of Moana expansa (Homoptera: Cicadidae), with reference to sound organs and the higher classification of the superfamily Cicadoidea
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis based upon study of the new specimen of the cicada Moana expansa shows that M. expansa was incorrectly placed in a separate subfamily Moaninae of the Cicadidae, and the genus Moana proved to be the sistergroup of Aceropyga.
An appraisal of the cicadas of the genus Abricta Stål and allied genera (Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha: Cicadidae)
TLDR
The cicada genus Abricta Stål is here redefined to include just two species that are found only in Mauritius, and the genus Chrysolasia n.gen.
Ten species added to the genus Aedeastria De Boer, 1990, with the description of eight new species and notes on the taxonomy and biogeography (Homoptera, Tibicinidae)
A new concept is proposed for the cicad genus Aedeastria De Boer, 1990, so that ten species can be added, bringing the total number of species to twelve. Of these ten species added to the genus, two
Inflatopyga, a New Cicada Genus (Homoptera : Cicadoidea : Cicadidae) Endemic to the Solomon Islands
TLDR
The distribution and monophyly of Inflatopyga suggest that the Solomon Islands form an area of endemism, while a cladogram showing the apomorphies suggests the monophyletic origin of the genera and the genus relationships.
The taxonomy and biogeography of the genus Thaumastopsaltira Kirkaldy, 1900 (Homoptera, Tibicinidae)
TLDR
Thaumastopsaltria belongs to a group of New Guinean and Australian genera, defined previously as the “Baeturia and related genera complex”, and is probably closely related to Aedeastria De Boer and Cystosoma Westwood of that complex.
Palaeozoic and Mesozoic hemiptera (Insecta)
New species of Triassic Homoptera and Heteroptera from the Brookvale series of New South Wales and Mt. Crosby, Queensland, are described, one homopteron from the Upper Permian of Warner's Bay,
The taxonomy and biogeography of the exhausta group of the genus Baeturia Stål, 1866 (Homoptera, Tibicinidae)
TLDR
The monophyly of the exhausta group and its phylogenetic position within the genus Baeturia are discussed and Maps of distribution are presented.
The eye-catching cicada Hamza ciliaris (Linnaeus, 1758) comb. n. in Indonesia and the Pacific: taxonomie status, synonymy, and distribution (Homoptera, Cicadoidea)
TLDR
The redescription of Hamza ciliaris is followed by discussions on its distribution, habitat, and taxonomie position and the current classification of the genus Hamza in the separate tribe Hamzini is questioned.
The leafhoppers and froghoppers of Australia and New Zealand (Homoptera: Cicadelloidea and Cercopoidea)
TLDR
The classification of the Cephalelini is reviewed and, as a result, some described genera are removed from synonymy and re-described and two new genera described.
The taxonomy, phylogeny and biogeography of the cicada genus Gymnotympana Stål, 1861 (Homoptera : Tibicinidae)
TLDR
Character distributions within Gymnotympana indicate several monophyletic species groups, and an attempt is made to explain the distribution characteristics of GymnotYmpana with the latest views on the geological history of New Guinea.
