Abstract. A key and descriptions are given for the four families here recognized for the superfamily Membracoidea Rafinesque, 1815: Cicadellidae Latreille, 1825 (sensu Oman et al., 1990), Melizoderidae, fam.n., Aetalionidae Spinola, 1850 redefined here), and Membracidae Rafinesque, 1815 (redefined here). The following placements are corroborated: Cicadelloidea Latreille, 1825, is a junior synonym of Membracoidea Rafinesque, 1815; Biturritiidae Metcalf, 1951, is a junior synonym of Aetalionidae… 

KEYS TO THE FAMILIES OF CICADOMORPHA AND SUBFAMILIES AND TRIBES OF CICADELLIDAE (HEMIPTERA: AUCHENORRHYNCHA)

Abstract Illustrated keys to adults reflecting the current higher classification are provided for families of Cicadomorpha (cicadas, spittlebugs, leafhoppers, and treehoppers) and for subfamilies and

Systematics and phylogeny of the Neotropical treehopper subfamily Nicomiinae (Hemiptera, Membracidae)

A phylogenetic analysis based on morphology supports the broader concept of Nicomiinae, and the monophyly of this group is supported by eleven characters, and all of the included genera are also monophyletic.

List of Cicadomorpha taxa described by Rauno E. Linnavuori (Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha)

The following 18 taxa were originally proposed as unavailable infrasubspecific names, being either published in papers describing forms and varieties along with subspecies or being established after 1960: Aphrophora alni f.

Superfamily Membracoidea (Homoptera: Auchenorrhyncha). II. Cladistic analysis and conclusions

Weighted and unweighted parsimony analyses of a matrix of sixty–three characters and thirty‐nine OTUs representing the families Aetalionidae, Cicadellidae, Melizoderidae and Membracidae yielded various topologies that were largely congruent but presented alternative hypotheses of relationships.

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

A synopsis of the tribe Micrutalini Haupt (Homoptera, Membracidae, Smiliinae)

The tribe Micrutalini and its two genera, Trachytalis Fowler andMicrutalis Fowler, are redescribed and, in some cases, nomenclatura! changes introduced.

Phylogeny of the major lineages of Membracoidea (Insecta: Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha) based on 28S rDNA sequences.

Analysis of sequences from a 3.5-kb region of the nuclear ribosomal 28S DNA gene spanning divergent domains D2-D10 supports the hypothesis, based on fossil, biogeographic, and behavioral evidence,

Contribution to the taxonomy of the family Membracidae Rafinesque (Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha) in Colombia.

Study of the literature and 3744 specimens deposited in ten colections in Colombia, as well as non-systematic collections and field observations done in Colombia between 2011 and 2014, led to record 116 genera and 474 species grouped in 9 subfamilies and 23 tribes, distributed in 24 departments.

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.

Espécies novas de Paracentronodus Sakakibara, (Homoptera, Membracidae, Centronodinae)

Seven new species of Paracentronodus Sakakibara, 1971 from Brazil, are described and Hemiptycha viridistriga Walker, 1858, considered by Metcalf & Wade (1965) in Hypheodana MetCalf, 1952, as Darninae genus, is transferred to Centronodinae.
