Abstract

Eight new species in the leafhopper genus Empoasca Walsh 1862 are described and illustrated (Empoasca acanthafera n. sp., Empoasca affinipeba n. sp., Empoasca apatapeba n. sp., Empoasca daggyi n. sp., Empoasca davidi n. sp., Empoasca nella n. sp., Empoasca peba n. sp., Empoasca pexa n. sp.). Relationships to previously described species are discussed. Solanasca Ghauri 1974 is treated as a junior synonym of Empoasca (new synonymy) and a revised generic diagnosis is provided.
