"SMALL Tibicen Species"
Several of these smaller and "mostly western" species appear quite divergent from the eastern members and may deserve separate Generic status. (Additional work is much needed to better understand the species' relationships within this Genus.)

NOTE: As mentioned, the above arrangement is "hypothetical" and much of it is based on older classification schemes (+ per. observ. and per. comm.). Additional genetic analysis and detailed morphological studies may reveal different taxonomic relationships.

Additional North American Tibicen species (incl. a few found in Mexico)
NOTE: Some of the species found at this site have been assigned different taxonomic status (i.e. at the specific and/or generic level)
