The Central American tribe Neaenini, originally comprising only the monobasic genus Neaenus Fowler, was thought to be transitional between Cercopinae and Aphrophorinae. The genus is here enlarged by 5 (1 unnamed)  additional species including 2 in a distinctive new subgenus Neaniskus. Keys are presented to 5 species of Neaenus, to 12 allied Neotropical genera and their 57 species: 12 of Tomaspisinella Lallemand, 1927 (=Hemitomaspis Lallemand, 1949, syn.nov. and 3 distinctive new subgenera…

A New Genus of Spittlebugs (Hemiptera, Cercopidae) from the Eocene of Central Tibetan Plateau

A new genus Nangamostethos gen. nov. of Cosmoscartini is described from Niubao Formation, the late Eocene of central Tibetan Plateau (TP), China, which represents one of few fossil Cercopidae species described from Asia.

Male terminalia of Cercopidae (Hemiptera, Cicadomorpha): towards a consensus terminology

This work has reviewed all the major works on the anatomy of terminalia for the Cercopidae since the first description using those characters in 1922, and proposed the use of consensual terms, listed with their definitions.

Overview of spittlebugs of the family Cercopidae (Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha) from Mexico, with keys to genera and species

This is the first complete compilation of the Cercopidae recorded for Mexico, with 39 described species, 1 subspecies and 1 undescribed, belonging to 10 genera.



Revision of Neotropical Aphrophorine Spittlebugs, Part 3: A New Caribbean Tribe Leocomiini (Hemiptera, Cercopoidea)

A new tribe Leocomiini, related to Orthoraphini and Capnodistini, is described from the Caribbean Basin and Central America and indicates an origin on Caribbean islands with subsequent dispersal to the mainland.

Phylogeny and biogeography of Neotropical spittlebugs (Hemiptera: Cercopidae: Ischnorhininae): revised tribal classification based on morphological data

A phylogenetic analysis of Ischnorhininae using 108 morphological characters and including 53 of the 59 recognized genera found significant support for the monophyly of many Neotropical genera, but Fennah's tribal classification is revised because tribes Neaenini, Ischn orhinini and Tomaspidini were recovered as polyphyletic.

Revisionary notes on the new world genera of Cercopid froghoppers (Homoptera: Cercopoidea)

The former Aphrophorid subfamily Neaeninae is reconstituted as a tripe of Cercopidae, and the tripe Funkhouseriini is suppressed under Tomaspidini.

Morphology of the antennal sensilla in four Australian spittlebug species (Hemiptera: Cercopidae) with implications for phylogeny

The antennal sense organs of four Australian spittlebugs, Aufidus trifasciatus Stal, Euryaulax carnifex (Fabricius), Petyllis deprivata (Walker) and Tonnoiria tasmaniae Lallemand (Hemiptera:

Nine new species of Neotropical spittlebugs (Hemiptera: Cercopidae: Ischnorhininae)

Nine new species of Neotropical spittlebugs (Hemiptera: Cercopidae: ischnorhininae) are described and illustrated in the genera Catrimania, Ischnorhina, Maxantonia, Vorago, and Zuata.

Family‐level relationships of the spittlebugs and froghoppers (Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha: Cercopoidea)

The first ever phylogenetic investigation of the higher‐level relationships within Cercopoidea is presented, suggesting four of the five described families are monophyletic and the origins of the major spittlebug lineages probably coincided with the breakup of Pangaea and, subsequently, Gondwana as well as major floristic diversification such as the rise of angiosperms.

Scanning Electron Microscopy of Antennal Sense Organs in Prosapia bicincta (Say) (Hemiptera: Cercopidae)

The external morphology of the sensilla on the antennae of the adult spittlebug, Prosapia bicincta (Say) (Hemiptera: Cercopidae), is described for the first time, using scanning electron microscope...
