The cicada fauna of Colombia is determined. A list of species reported from Colombia in the literature is provided along with synonymies, the description of Orellana castaneamaculata Sanborn, sp. nov., and the first Colombian records of 14 cicada species. Two species are assigned to new genera. Cicada xanthospila Germar, 1830 is transferred to Bergalna Boulard and Martinelli, 1996 to become Bergalna xanthospila (Germar, 1830) comb. nov. and Fidicina bogotana Distant, 1892 is transferred to Dorisiana Metcalf, 1952 to become Dorisiana bogotana comb. nov. The generic affiliation of Orellana brevis Distant, 1905 and Orellana columbia (Distant, 1881) is clarified with O. brevis being reassigned to Zammara. The first records of Zammara smaragdula Walker, 1858, Plautilla hammondi Distant, 1914, Diceroprocta bicosta (Walker, 1850), Proarna dactyliophora Berg, 1879, Fidicinoides brisa (Walker, 1850), Fidicinoides distanti (Goding, 1925), Fidicinoides flavibasalis (Distant, 1905), Fidicinoides flavipronotum Sanborn, 2007, Fidicinoides poulaini Boulard and Martinelli, 1996, Bergalna xanthospila (Germar, 1830), Majeorona aper (Walker, 1850), Carineta argentea Walker, 1852, Taphura sauliensis Boulard, 1971, and Durangona tigrina Distant, 1911 are provided. Proarna bergi (Distant, 1892) is removed from the Colombian cicada fauna. The additions bring the total cicada diversity of Colombia to 63 species and represent a 31.3% increase in faunal diversity. Three subfamilies, 10 tribes and 18 genera are represented within the Colombian cicada fauna. © 2010 Taylor & Francis.

Introduction. The Weil osteotomy is commonly used for multiple forefoot pathologies yielding metatarsalgia. Despite its common use, the Weil osteotomy is associated with a high complication rate. Methods. A literature review was undertaken with predetermined criteria. To maximize the articles for review, prospective and retrospective studies were considered as well as multiple indications. Seventeen articles qualified for analysis, and study format, patient demographics, surgical indication, and complication rates were documented. The data obtained were totaled and evaluated for trends. Results. Details of 1131 Weil osteotomies are reported. The most commonly reported complication of the Weil osteotomy was floating toe, reported in 233 cases, with an overall occurrence of 36%. Recurrence was reported in 15% of the cases. Transfer metatarsalgia was reported in 7% of the cases, whereas delayed union, non-union, and malunion were collectively reported in 3% of the cases. Discussion. There is no consensus regarding utilization of the Weil osteotomy with prophylactic surgery, plantar plate repair, and adjunctive interphalangeal arthrodesis. These variables may alter complication rates and provide new avenues for research.

The cicada fauna of French Guiana is surveyed. A total of 53 species representing 17 genera, six tribes and two subfamilies has been reported as inhabiting the country. Nine new species Hyantia bahlenhorsti n. sp., Carineta apicoinfuscata n. sp., C. guianaensis n. sp., C. modesta n. sp., C. quinimaculata n. sp., Selymbria danieleae n. sp., Taphura boulardi n. sp., T. egeri n. sp., and T. maculata n. sp. are described. The first records of Ariasa marginata (Olivier, 1790), Fidicina robini Boulard & Martinelli, 1996, Fidicinoides jauff reti Boulard & Martinelli, 1996, Fidicinoides sucinalae Boulard & Martinellli, 1996, Guyalna nigra Boulard, 1999, Majeorona truncata Goding, 1925, Majeorona bovilla Distant, 1905, Carineta argentea Walker, 1852, C. doxiptera Walker, 1858, C. illustris Distant, 1905, C. lichiana Boulard, 1986, and C. ventralis Jacobi, 1907 are provided. In total, the cicada fauna of French Guiana is increased by 64.2%, wiThendemism determined to be 34%. © Publications Scientifiques du Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, Paris.

A new genus and five new species Ariasa maryannae n. sp., Ariasa russelli n. sp., Guyalna jamesi n. sp., Guyalna maxineae n. sp., and Malloryalna susanae n. gen., n. sp. are described. Cicada kirkaldyi Metcalf, 1963 and its synonyms (C. obtusa Uhler, 1903 and C. brasiliensis Kirkaldy, 1909) are transferred to the genus Fidicinoides Boulard & Martinelli, 1996 to become Fidicinoides kirkaldyi (Metcalf, 1963) n. comb. Cicada egregia Uhler, 1903 is transferred to the genus Ariasa Distant, 1905 to become Ariasa egregia (Uhler, 1903) n. comb. Dorisiana bicolor (Olivier, 1790) is transferred to the genus Guyalna Boulard and Martinelli, 1996 to become Guyalna bicolor (Olivier, 1790) n. comb. Fidicinoides passerculus (Walker, 1850) n. syn., Fidicinoides spinicosta (Walker, 1850) n. syn. and Cicada lacrines Walker, 1850 n. syn. are shown to be junior synonyms of Guyalna bicolor n. comb. Fidicina parvula Jacobi, 1904 is transferred to the genus Guyalna Boulard & Martinelli, 1996 to become Guyalna parvula (Jacobi, 1904) n. comb. Previous records of Fidicinoides passerculus (Walker, 1850) and Carineta illustris Distant, 1905 from French Guiana are shown to be Dorisiana bicolor (Olivier, 1790) and Carineta cearana Distant, 1906, respectively, and are removed from the cicada fauna of French Guiana; this is the first record of C. cearana for French Guiana. The cicada fauna of French Guiana is hereby increased to 62 species in 17 genera. © Publications scientifiques du Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, Paris.

The accuracy of video analysis of the passive straight-leg raise test (PSLR) and the validity of the sit-and-reach test (SR) were tested in 60 men and women. Computer software measured static hip-joint flexion accurately. High within-session reliability of the PSLR was demonstrated (R >.97). Test-retest (separate days) reliability for SR was high in men (R = .97) and women R = .98) moderate for PSLR in men (R = .79) and women (R = .89). SR validity (PSLR as criterion) was higher in women (Day 1, r = .69; Day 2, r = .81) than men (Day 1, r = .64; Day 2, r = .66). In conclusion, video analysis is accurate and feasible for assessing static joint angles, PSLR and SR tests are very reliable methods for assessing flexibility, and the SR validity for hamstring flexibility was found to be moderate in women and low in men. © 2011 by the American Alliance for Health.
