Memoir 19 treats the phylogeny and systematics of the long neglected treehopper subfamily Centrotinae (Hemiptera: Membracidae). This work includes: phylogenetic hypotheses used to place 206 of 216 genera into monophyletic tribes; an illustrated tribal key and descriptions for identifying the 23 valid tribes (6 new); and discussions of phylogeny, biogeography, and several life history traits. The monograph also provides 186 figures illustrating key tribal and generic characteristics (with 1500 individual digital photographs from both light and scanning electron microscopy and line drawings).
