Abstract

New genera and new species of Australian and New Zealand Cicadelloidea and a new species of Cercopoidea, described from Australia subsequent to the publication of The Leafhoppers and Froghoppers of Australia and New Zealand (Evans, 1966), are listed. Particulars are given of changes in classification and nomenclature and of new knowledge acquired during the past decade. Two new genera of Eurymelidae are described (Iposa, type species: Anipo fusca Evans and Relipo, type species: R. oenpellensis sp. n.); also a new species, Ipoella douglasi. The classification of the Cephalelini is reviewed and, as a result, some described genera are removed from synonymy and re-described and two new genera described (Linacephalus, type species: Paradorydium michaelseni Jacobi, and Alocephalus, type species: Dorycephalus ianthe Kirkaldy). The first representative of the Myerslopiini to be recorded from Australia is described (Myerslopella gen. nov., type species: M. taylori sp. n.) and the antiquity of the tribe discussed. Other Cicadellidae described are as follows: Paradorydium narrabrensis, Austroagalloides moorei and Stenogiffardia gen. nov., type species: S. elongata sp. n. (Platymetopiini).
