Two new species are described in the genus Clinopsalta Moulds. Clinopsalta autumna sp. nov. exhibits a warm temperate distribution from south-east Queensland south to Goulburn and Nerriga in eastern New South Wales. Clinopsalta semilunata sp. nov. has a patchy distribution in southern Queensland from Binjour Plateau west to near Miles, south to Yelarbon State Forest and Durikai State Forest, both near Inglewood. In addition to the descriptions of these new species, further distribution records… 



The structure of calling songs in the cicada Pauropsalta annulata Goding and Froggatt (Hemiptera: Cicadidae): evidence of diverging populations?

Investigating the rhythmic song structure across the range of three known song types in a variable cicada, Pauropsalta annulata Goding and Froggatt reveals four discrete clusters that are demonstrated to be independent and stable across extensive geographic space in areas of allopatry and, generally, also into areas of sympatry.

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.

Calling songs of sympatric and allopatric populations of Cicada barbara and C. orni (Hemiptera: Cicadidae) on the Iberian Peninsula

Calling songs of the sibling species Cicada barbara and C. orni were studied in sympatric and allopatric populations on the Iberian Peninsula and it is assumed that the calling songs are the most important premating isolating mechanism corresponding to the specific-mate recognition systems of these species of cicadas.

Differences in the male calling songs of two sibling species of Cicada (Hemiptera: Cicadoidea) in Greece

As there has been very little divergence between these two species at the protein electrophoretic level, the acoustic divergence has evolved independently of allozyme divergence, this may imply that in these cicada acoustic divergence, and therefore premating isolation, may have evolved rapidly and resulted in rapid speciation at low levels of general genetic differentiation.

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.

Calling Song Structure and Geographic Variation in Cicada orni Linnaeus (Hemiptera: Cicadidae)

An analysis of the structure of the calling song of Cicada orni Linnaeus, 1758 over a selected part of its distribution range in the Mediterranean area was carried out in order to better understand

Cicada acoustic communication: potential sound partitioning in a multispecies community from Mexico (Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha: Cicadidae)

In a fragment of a Mexican rainforest, a cicada community at the end of the dry season consisting of nine species, seven of the nine species formed dense choruses at dawn and at dusk and each species showed preferences in the height of calling sites.

Acoustic signals in cicada courtship behaviour (order Hemiptera, genus Tibicina )

Differences in courtship song structure between two pairs of sympatric species, respectively T. c.

Tymbal mechanics and the control of song frequency in the cicada Cyclochila australasiae

The anatomy of the tymbal of Cyclochila australasiae was re-described and the mass of the Tymbal plate, ribs and resilin pad was measured, showing that the thick dorsal resilin pads was an important elastic determinant of the resonant frequency, but that the mass and elasticity of theTymbal ribs were also determinants of the Resonant frequency.
