Abstract

A new tribe, Talcopsaltriini, subfamily Cicadinae, is described to accommodate Talcopsaltria olivei, n.gen., n.sp. a species recorded from Cape York Peninsula, Queensland. Relationships of the Talcopsaltriini are discussed and comparisons made with allied tribes. A modified key to Australian tribes of the subfamily Cicadinae is provided. The terms anterior and posterior cranial depressions are introduced for two structures on the head previously unnamed.
