Abstract

Psaltoda antennetta n.sp. and P. maccallumi n.sp. are cicadas restricted to rainforest habitats in northeastern Queensland. Psaltoda mossi n.sp. is far more widespread, ranging through eastern Queensland to northern New South Wales. Psaltoda antennetta is remarkable for its foliate antennal flagella, an attribute almost unique among the Cicadoidea. Relationships of these three species are discussed and a revised key to all Psaltoda species provided.
