status

 

Neocicada Kato 1932: 168  .

Type species: Neocicada hieroglyphica (Say)  .

There are two species and one subspecies of Neocicada  in North America north of Mexico (Sanborn and Heath, in preparation) but the genus has recently been shown to have greater diversity in Mexico and Central America ( Sanborn et al. 2005). Males of the genus are particularly easy to identify by their translucent abdomen. One species, comprising two subspecies, occurs in Florida.

Neocicada  males are easy to identify due to their translucent lower abdomen (fig. 148) and broadly rounded and outwardly flared timbal covers which partially expose the timbals (fig. 150). Specimens of Neocicada  have elongate, relatively uniformly narrow bodies marked with dark linear streaks dorsally (fig. 149). The tegmina have infuscations on the radial and radiomedial crossveins and on distal radius anterior 2, radius posterior, median, and cubitus anterior 1 veins near the ambient vein (fig. 148). The radial and radiomedial crossveins of the tegmina are nearly parallel.
