Variability of populations of the brachypterous Erythria taxa in the northern Apennines and Maritime Alps is investigated, figured and discussed in the context of possible hybridization between E. ferrarii (Puton) and E. alpina (Vidano). Kybos albitalicus sp. nov., a species closely related to K. virgator (Ribaut) and living together with this species on Salix alba (L.), and Arboridia itangulata sp. nov., with clear affinity to A. expansa Zachvatkin, are described as new. Several Tamaricella populations from Italy includingSardinia and Sicily, collected on Frankenia laevis L. and Tamarix spp. and provisionally classified as T. cf. ribauti (Zachvatkin) are compared in genital morphology, measurements and coloration. Taxonomic problems concerning T. ribauti and related species are discussed. The aedeagus and pygofer appendage of Tamaricella gr. cypria (Ribaut) from Pantelleria are figured. © 2011 Magnolia Press.

The last immature stage and the mature larva of Dryinus tarraconensis Marshall, 1868 and Gonatopus baeticus (Ceballos, 1927) are described for the first time. Features of immature and mature larvae of both species are discussed in the context of their implications for characterizing the subfamilies Dryininae and Gonatopodinae.

The first record of the planthopper tribe Achilini from Argentina is established with the description of Olmiana argentinagen. and sp. nov.. Details of the fifth larval instar are described. The systematic position of the new genus within the Achilidae is discussed, and a key to the genera of the subtribe Achilina is provided. Copyright © 2010. Source

The last immature stage and the mature larva of Mystrophorus formicaeformis Ruthe are described for the first time. The affinities of both immature and mature larvae of M. formicaeformis and corresponding instars of other subfamilies are respectively discussed. Copyright © 2010. Magnolia Press. Source

The North American species of Brachygluta Thomson, 1859 are revised, treating a total of 29 species. Six names are placed as junior synonyms: Bryaxis perpunctata Brendel, 1890 (=B. luniger LeConte, 1849), B. labyrinthea Casey, 1894 (=B. intermedia Brendel, 1866), B. loripes Casey, 1894 and B. jacobina Casey, 1908 (=B. foveata LeConte, 1851), B. arizonae Casey, 1887 (=B. texana Casey, 1886), and B. intricata Casey, 1894 (=B. terebrata Casey, 1894). Twelve new Brachygluta species are described: B. chisos Sabella (USA), B. cochimi Bückle (Mexico), B. eldredgei Chandler (USA), B. kiowa Sabella (USA), B. klamath Bückle (USA), B. lareaui Chandler (USA), B. mayo Sabella (Mexico), B. miccosukee Bückle (USA), B. seri Chandler (Mexico), B. shawnee Chandler (USA), B. tamaulipec Sabella (Mexico and USA), and B. wickhami Bückle (USA). Problems with the identities of the following three species based on missing types are discussed: Bryaxis abdominalis Aubé, 1833; Bryaxis curvicera Motschulsky, 1854; and Pselaphus dentatus Say, 1824, with a Neotype being designated for P. dentatus. Nisa Casey, 1886 is removed from synonymy of Brachygluta and reinstituted as a subgenus. A key to the males is provided, nine species-groups are formed and defined, all species are characterized, distributions are detailed, and habitat/collecting data are summarized. Lectotypes are designated for Bryaxis arguta Casey, Bryaxis belfragei LeConte, Bryaxis foveata LeConte, Bryaxis infinita Casey, Brachygluta jacobina Casey, and Brachygluta mormon Bowman.
