Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The New World erythroneurine leafhopper genus Neozygina Dietrich & Dmitriev is revised based on comparative morphological study, and a key for identification of adult males is provided. Twenty-five valid species are recognized, nine of which were previously described and 16 of which are new. One new synonymy is recognized: Neozygina davisi (Beamer) equals N. arida (Beamer), new synonym. The known range of the genus extends from the U.S.A. to Chile and Argentina.
