Amblyscarta Stål 

Tettigonia (Amblyscarta) Stål, 1869: 71  .

Type-species: Tettigonia modesta Fabricius, 1803: 70  , by subsequent designation of Kirkaldy (1907: 89).

Strictogonia Melichar, 1926: 358  , syn. nov.

Type-species: Cicada unifasciata Fabricius, 1803: 72  , by original designation.

Diagnosis. Robust sharpshooters with head slightly produced and broadly rounded anteriorly; ocelli located behind imaginary line between anterior eye angles, each closer to adjacent anterior eye angle than to median line of crown; epistomal suture almost always entire. Forewing with coriaceous texture; veins distinct, often elevated. Male terminalia with connective in form of transverse bar (i.e., without stalk); paraphyses absent. Female terminalia with sternite VII bearing median posterior projection or lobe.

Note. The external morphology (head and thorax) of the three new species herein described and of A. unifasciata  comb. nov. agrees with the above diagnosis and with the detailed description of the genus provided by Young (1977: 176). Hence, in the descriptions below, we focus on the color pattern and the terminalia of males and females.
