Hysteropterum is a genus of planthoppers described by Amyot & Serville in 1843, belonging to the family
, subfamily Issinae.
is a family of planthoppers described by Spinola in 1839, belonging to the order Hemiptera, suborder Auchenorrhyncha superfamily Fulgoroidea.
are small insects generally with a stocky body, as the wings mainly develop in width. Basic body coloration is not striking, usually shows brownish colors. The head has two ocelli. The forewings have strong pronounced ribs. They wrap the abdomen when the insect is at rest. The family originally included approximately 1000 species with 215 genera, but the systematics of
remains uncertain, with many of the subfamilies having been recently removed to separate families, including Caliscelidae. Nogodinidae, and Tropiduchidae.
Caliscelidae is a family of planthoppers, sap-sucking insects that belong to the order Hemiptera, suborder Auchenorrhyncha and superfamily Fulgoroidea. They are somewhat anomalous and have often been included within the family
. Studies made in 2013 of the phylogeny of the
and other groups using molecular techniques support the treatment of the group as a separate family. Sexual dimorphism can be marked. Some members of the family are called piglet bugs due to the shape of their snout. A particularly aberrant genus described in 2011 from India, "Formiscurra", has males that resemble ants.
was once large and included many groups which are now treated in other families or as families themselves. These groups include the Caliscelidae, Nogodinidae, and Tropiduchidae (e.g., subfamilies Tonginae and Trienopinae). Around 2003, the treatment is in favour of a single subfamily Issinae with five tribes Issini, Parahiraciini, Hemisphaeriini, Thioniini, and Colpopterini.
Issus is a genus of 'planthoppers' belonging to the family
of infraorder Fulgoromorpha of suborder Auchenorrhyncha of order Hemiptera. Like most members of the order Hemiptera (popularly known as the "bug" or "true bugs" order) they live on phloem sap that they extract with their piercing, sucking mouth parts.
Nogodinidae is a family of planthoppers. They have membranous wings with delicate venation and can be confused with members of other Fulgoroid families such as the
and Tropiduchidae. Some authors treat it as a subfamily of the
. Some of their key features are a frons ("face") that is longer than wide and a reticulate wing venation. They are less than 2 cm long. The antenna arises well below the eye, has the base clubbed and flagellum unsegmented. The lateral ocelli (simple eyes) are outside the margins of the face. The face has carinae (or keels) on the edge. On the hind leg, the second tarsal segment has an apical spine arising from it. The tibia of the hind leg also has spines towards the tip. An important family character is found in the shape of the male genital structure, a style that is longer than broad. Most members of this family are forest species.
Cuénoud had a minor part in the "Ibisca" project ("Investigating the Biodiversity of Soil and Canopy Arthropods"), an ambitious scientific programme led by Bruno Corbara, Maurice Leponce, Hector Barrios and Yves Basset (with the initial support of Edward O. Wilson), that produced new data on the biodiversity of the San Lorenzo rainforest, on the Caribbean coast of the Panama isthmus (in a paper written by the "Ibisca" team and featured on the cover of the prestigious scientific journal Science , the total count of arthropod species of the forest was extrapolated to be about 25'000). Cuénoud is possibly the only person this far to have seen (and photographed) a live specimen of the rare insect species "Oronoqua ibisca" (
), discovered during the field-sampling phase of the project and known otherwise from dead specimens .
Gergithus is a genus of planthoppers in the family
. Like all planthoppers, adults feed on plant sap and are capable of escaping by leaping. The genus like other members in the tribe appears somewhat rounded and beetle-like, in some cases, with a mimetic resemblance to ladybird beetles. About 60 species are known in the genus and they are distributed in the oriental and Palaerctic region. The genus is closely related to "Hemisphaerius" but differs in having longer frons (forehead) and legs. The frons also lacks a median keel (carina) or tubercles on the frons, pronotum or mesonotum. The rounded tegmen which resembles the elytra of beetles are often patterned. Although some species show variations in pattern, many species can be recognized on the basis of the patterns.
