The Argentine cicada fauna is determined. A total of 108 species belonging to 37 genera, eight tribes, and three subfamilies of cicadas are represented in the Argentine cicada fauna. One genus and 15 species are described as new to science: Torresia Sanborn & Heath gen. n., Fidicinoides ferruginosa Sanborn & Heath sp. n., Proarna alalonga Sanborn & Heath sp. n., Proarna parva Sanborn & Heath sp. n., Prasinosoma medialinea Sanborn & Heath sp. n., Dorisiana noriegai Sanborn & Heath sp. n., Guyalna platyrhina Sanborn & Heath sp. n., Herrera humilastrata Sanborn & Heath sp. n., Herrera umbraphila Sanborn & Heath sp. n., Parnisa lineaviridia Sanborn & Heath sp. n., Parnisa viridis Sanborn & Heath sp. n., Alarcta micromacula Sanborn & Heath sp. n., Torresia lariojaensis Sanborn & Heath sp. n., Torresia sanjuanensis Sanborn & Heath sp. n., Chonosia longiopercula Sanborn & Heath sp. n., and Chonosia septentrionala Sanborn & Heath sp. n. Adusella signata Haupt, 1918 rev. stat. is determined to be a valid species, removed as a junior synonym of Tettigades lebruni Distant, 1906 and reassigned to the genus Odopoea Distant to become Odopoea signata comb. n. Fidicina vinula Stål, 1854 rev. stat. is determined to be a valid species, removed as a junior synonym of Fidicinoides pronoe (Walker, 1850) and assigned to the genus Fidicinoides Boulard & Martinelli to become Fidicinoides vinula comb. n. Proarna capistrata Distant, 1885 rev. stat. is determined to be a valid species, removed as a junior synonym of Proarna montividensis Berg, 1882. Chonosia papa (Berg, 1882) rev. stat. is determined to be a valid species and removed as a junior synonym of Chonosia crassipennis (Walker, 1858). Chonosia crassipennis var. metequei nom. nud. Delétang, 1919 syn. n. is considered natural variation in C. crassipennis. Dorisia bonaerensis var. bergi nom. nud. Delétang, 1919 syn. n. and Dorisia bonaerensis var. dominiquei nom. nud. Delétang, 1919 syn. n. are considered to be natural variation within Guyalna bonaerensis (Berg, 1879). Derotettix proseni Torres, 1945 is determined to be a junior synonym of Derotettix wagneri Distant, 1905 syn. n. Dorisiana metcalfi nom. nov. pro Cicada viridis Olivier, 1790 nec Cicada viridis Linnaeus, 1758 is proposed. Tettigades lizeriana Delétang, 1919 is shown to be an invalid name for the purposes of zoological nomenclature. The first records for Argentina of Fidicinoides determinata (Walker, 1858), Fidicinoides vinula (Stål, 1854) comb. n., rev. stat., Prasinosoma fuembuenai Torres, 1963, Ariasa bilaqueata (Uhler, 1903), Ariasa colombiae (Distant, 1892), Carineta boliviana Distant, 1905, Carineta gemella Boulard, 1986, Calyria stigma (Walker, 1850), Selymbria pandora Distant, 1911, Taphura hastifera (Walker, 1858), Taphura misella (Stål, 1854), and Tettigades angularis Torres, 1958 are provided. Ten species are removed from the Argentine cicada fauna. The new records and new species represent a 36% increase in the known cicada fauna. Fifty-eight species (54%) and 10 genera (27%) are currently endemic to Argentina. Copyright © 2014 Magnolia Press. Source

Cicadas of the genus Beameria Davis are small, grass dwelling species found across much of western North America. We provide the first detailed description of the genus and describe the new species Beameria ansercollis sp. nov. Sanborn and M. Heath with this work. The morphology, biogeography, song parameters and thermal tolerances of the new and known species of Beameria are described and comparisons between the species are made. There are significant statistical differences in morphology, song parameters and thermal tolerances between the species of the genus. The biogeography of all species is illustrated. A key to the species of Beameria is provided. © 2011 Taylor & Francis. Source

The genus Pacarina Distant, 1905 is redescribed along with the description of the new species Pacarina shoemakeri sp. nov. Sanborn and M. Heath. The morphology, biogeography, calling song and thermal tolerances of P. shoemakeri sp. nov. are described and compared with the partially sympatric Pacarina puella Davis, 1923 (= Cicada signifera Walker, 1858). A key to the species of Pacarina is provided. Pacarina, Beameria Davis, 1934, Ollanta Distant, 1905, Proarna Stål, 1864, Prasinosoma Torres, 1963, Ellasoneura Torres, 1964, Tympanoterpes Stål, 1861, Pompanonia Boulard, 1982 and Ariasa Distant, 1905 are formally assigned to the subtribe Guyalnina Boulard and Martinellli, 1996. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
