ABSTRACT
No publications have reported delphacid planthoppers (Family Delphacidae) to be turf pests in the United States. In March 2005, a large infestation of the delphacid planthopper, Liburnia pseudoseminigra (Muir & Gifford), was found infesting St. Augustinegrass, [i]Stenotaphrum secundatum[/i

Abstract

The planthopper genus Chionomus Fennah, 1971 (Hemiptera: Fulgoroidea: Delphacidae) currently includes three Neotropical species, removed from the polyphyletic genus Delphacodes Fieber, 1866. Morphological and molecular evidence further redefine Chionomus to include ten additional species (eight species removed from Delphacodes, two described as new, viz. Chionomus dolonus n. sp. and C. herkos n. sp.), with another four species synonymized. Phylogenetic analyses of morphological and molecular sequence data of the mitochondrial gene Cytochrome Oxidase I provide support for the monophyly of Chionomus. We use a mixed model Bayesian optimality criterion to define phylogenetic relationships among Chionomus and support paraphyly of the original definition of Chionomus (with respect to Delphacodes) and monophyly of the revised genus.

Revision of the New World delphacid genus Pissonotus (Hemiptera: Fulgoroidea)
By Bartlett, C. R. and L. L. Deitz
Entomol. Soc. Am., Lanham, 2000
Summary taken on the Entomological Society of America web site: “This comprehensive study of nearly 10,000 plant-hoppers corrects the ambiguities in the key and descriptions of Pissonotus by Morgan and Beamer (1949), applies their definitions to world fauna, addresses the suspicion that there were undescribed species in the genus, and presents a phylogenetic analysis of the genus. The end result is identification aid of the genus.”
