Macrosteles ossiannilssoni Lindberg, 1954 

Macrosteles ossiannilssoni Lindberg, 1954: 237  ; Lindberg, 1961: 63

Macrosteles sexnotatus  ; Lindberg, 1941: 31 [identification error]

Cicadula fasciifrons  ; China, 1938: 46 [Identification error]

Distribution. Europe. MADEIRA: reported from many localities from the coast up to mountain slopes ( Lindberg, 1941). PORTO SANTO: reported only from Serra de Dentro-Pico Juliana ( Lindberg, 1961).

Habitat. Wet shores of streams with rich vegetation ( Lindberg, 1961).

Remarks. Lindberg (1941) examined 15 specimens of Cicadula fasciifrons Stål  from Wollaston’s collection, studied also by China (1938, p. 46), and misidentified them as Macrosteles sexnotatus Fall. 1806  . Later, Lindberg (1961) stated that this material could belong either to M. ossianilssoni  , to M. fascifrons  or to M. ramosus  (= quadricornis  ). Because M. ossiannilssoni  was very common in Madeira, Lindberg considered this material as probably M. ossiannilssoni  . M. fascifrons  is known from Scandinavia and Siberia; therefore, its presence in Madeira is unlikely. This record should be further confirmed.
