Abstract

Pentoffiini is a small tribe of Neotropical leafhoppers that includes two genera: Evanirvana Hill, 1973 with only one species, E. aurea, previously known only from females and Pentoffia Kramer, 1964 with seven species. Here, we describe the male of E. aurea, a new species of Evanirvana, E. tambopata sp. nov., from Peru, and a new species of Pentoffia, P. santosi sp. nov., from Peru. A revised diagnosis for Evanirvana and key to all known species of Pentoffiini are provided.
