A new species of Tipuana (Auchenorrhyncha: Cicadellidae: Cicadellini) from the state of Amazonas, Brazil, with a key to males of the genus

Abstract: A new species of Tipuana Melichar, 1926, T. similis sp. nov., is described and illustrated based on specimens from the state of Amazonas, northern Brazil. The new taxon is externally very similar to T. chirensis Young, 1977. It can be distinguished from the latter and from the other known species of the genus mainly by the aedeagus with a triangular, posteriorly directed projection between the basidorsal apodemes, and with shaft not expanded apically and bearing two sharp, short apical processes curved dorsall… Show more

“…Therefore, the assignment of P. angrana to Platygonia is doubtful and should be further investigated by means of morphological and molecular phylogenetic analyses. This paper, along with other publications on the taxonomy of the tribes Cicadellini and Proconiini (e.g., Cavichioli & Mejdalani 2012;Silva et al 2017, andPecly et al 2019), reveals that the fauna of the Cicadellinae from the Neotropical Region, especially that from the Amazon Rainforest, is still poorly known. The greater concentration of leafhopper taxonomists in Southeastern and Southern Brazil, in comparison with other regions of the country, is possibly an explanation for this problem, as well as the great difficulties for accessing various collection sites in the Amazon region.…”
