REMARKS. Cicada lutea remains the type species of the new genus Kirkaldy (1904) provided for the preoccupied name Pydna . Cicada lutea Olivier, 1790 is placed as a junior synonym of Cicada scurra Germar, 1830 by Kirkaldy (1909). This is admissible under articles 53.3 and 57.2 of the Code because Cicada lutea Olivier, 1790 is a primary homonym of Cicada lutea Gmelin, 1789 and Stål (1861) considered the species to be synonyms.
