The following should be changed, per Matt Wallace, one of the treehopper experts for the eastern U.S.:
- Ceresa festina is Spissistilus festinus
- Acutalis brunnea is a synonym of A. tartarea, the valid name
- Ceresa palmeri is Stictocephala palmeri
- Ceresa lutea, C. stimulea, C. basalis, and C. diceros are in Stictocephala (can't speak for the other Ceresa)
