Per the recent 2017 Dietrich publication on hopper taxonomy, Neocoelidia is now in a subfamily of its own: Neocoelidiinae. Specifically within the tribe Neocoelidiini.

Dietrich, C.H., Allen, J.M., Lemmon, A.R., Lemmon, E.M., Takiya, D.M., Evangelista, O., Walden, K.K., Grady, P.G., Johnson, K.P. and Wiegmann, B., 2017. Anchored hybrid enrichment-based phylogenomics of leafhoppers and treehoppers (Hemiptera: Cicadomorpha: Membracoidea). Insect Systematics and Diversity, 1(1), pp.57-72.

OK, created the subfamily Neocoelidiinae
and moved the genus Neocoelidia under it. Didn't bother with the tribe since there was only one genus in the subfamily

it appears that other genera in this subfamily are outside North America
