Muda  undescribed species B

Species removed from the Thai Cicada fauna

The following species are removed from the Thai fauna. The rationale for removal is listed after each species.

Chremistica bimaculata ( Olivier, 1790)  . Thai specimens determined as C. bimaculata  are actually an undescribed species ( Yaakop et al. 2005).

Cryptotympana vesta  ( Distant, 1904 c). These specimens are probably C. gracilis Hayashi  (Hayashi 1987 b). Considering the distribution of C. vesta  , an Indian species (Metcalf, 1963 a), this is probably correct.

Kalamata javanensis Distant, 1905 c. Siam is listed as a question in Moulton (1923), who then states the species is restricted to Java.

Terpnosia andersoni Distant, 1892  . Location in Ishihara (1961) is Nam Tha, Laos, not Thailand. Other localities include India, China, and Burma (Metcalf, 1963 a), so the species may eventually be collected in Thailand.

Terpnosia psecas ( Walker, 1850)  . Moulton (1923) said it was “possible to refer a specimen from Siam ” but could not conclusively identify a specimen from Thailand. Because no one else has reported a specimen from Thailand, the species is removed from the fauna.

Platylomia radha ( Distant, 1881)  . Indochina specimens of P. radha  were reassigned to the resurrected P. operculata  ( Boulard, 2005 b). Platylomia radha  is primarily an Indian species (Metcalf, 1963 b).

Platylomia similis  ( Distant, 1888 b). Specimens from Moulton (1923) are actually an undescribed species ( Beuk, 1998). Platylomia similis  is an Indian species (Metcalf, 1963 b).

Platylomia spinosa ( Fabricius, 1787)  . Beuk (1996) questions accuracy of labels in his revision of the group. Beuk, 1999: 12–25, Fig. 2 View Figure –12, lists Ban Tong 8 o 03’00”N 100 o 31 ’00”E; Phu Khieo, Chaiyapummh (Chaiyaphum) District, N.E. Thailand, 800 as locations in Thailand. The species is found in Malaysia, Indonesia, and Brunei ( Beuk, 1999).

Dundubia bifasciata Liu, 1940  . Species synonymized with D. hainanensis (Distant, 1901)  by Beuk (1996); but this species is not found in Thailand ( Beuk 1996). Thai specimens transferred to D. nagarasingha  by Beuk (1996). The species is reported from India, China, and Japan (Metcalf, 1963 b).

Pomponia adusta ( Walker, 1850)  . Species is restricted to Java. Thai specimens are considered to be examples of P. pendelburyi  ( Boulard 2001 b, 2005 e).
