Latissus dilatatus ( Fourcroy, 1785) 

Cicada dilatata  de Fourcroy, 1785: 193. Latissus dilatatus (Fourcroy)  , Dlabola, 1974: 299. Issus luteus Fieber, 1876: 260  , syn. fide Puton, 1899: 105. ( Fig. 4 View Figure )

Note. Issus luteus  was based probably on two males from Italy. In NLC there is a male with Noualhier’s hand-written label: “ Type Fieber”, but without a small green square and with genital segments invisible externally, while Fieber has figured the male genitalia of possibly a second specimen. We prefer to designate a male with exposed male genitalia as a lectotype if one can be found in the future.

GENUS TINGISSUS GNEZDILOV, 2003 

Tingissus melanophleps ( Fieber, 1877)  , comb. n. Hysteropterum melanophleps Fieber, 1877: 5 

Hysteropterum melanophleps (Fieber)  , Dlabola, 1984: 31, figs. 16-26 Agalmatium melanophleps (Fieber)  , Gnezdilov, 2003: 77 (Fig. 5)

Type material examined. Ƥ, lectotype (here designated) ( MNHNAbout MNHN (EH) 7470) (PC).

Note. The species was based on a female (or females) from Bielsa (Huesca Province of Spain) collected by (or received from) Scott. The female from PC without label corresponds to Fieber’s drawings and it is here designated as lectotype.

The species belongs to the genus Tingissus Gnezdilov, 2003  , according to the characteristic rounded transverse keels on the gonoplacs, the anal tube twice as long as wide and the presence of 7 intermediate spines on the first metatarsomere apically. Dlabola (1984) figured male genitalia of H. melanophleps  but incorrectly placed H. fuscovenosum Fieber, 1877  (see below) and H. guadarramense Melichar, 1906  in synonymy under it. Examination of the types of all mentioned species supported their validity ( Gnezdilov, 2010 and present data). Recently Gnezdilov (2003) incorrectly transferred H. melanophleps  to the genus Agalmatium Emeljanov, 1971  .
