Nymphs of some species of the tribes drabescini and paraboloponini with a proposed synonymy of paraboloponini with drabescini (hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Deltocephalinae)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The last instar nymphs of some species from the genera Drabescus, Welmaya, Athysanopsis, Kutara, and Dryadomorpha are described. Based on mainly nymphal characters the tribe Paraboloponini is considered a junior synonym of Drabescini. The nymphal characters uniting these groups are as follows: head with dorsal and ventral longitudinal carinae, antennae long; the entire body not rarely covered with numerous setae, abdomen with 2–8 longitudinal rows of setae, in some cases on tubercles; pygofer with pair of long apical appendages widely separated at base. Drabescini is considered a tribe of the subfamily Deltocephalinae.
