how to distinct Cicadomorpha and Fulgoromorpha?
Dear all,

I am new to the identification and I am doing my Master Thesis in Guadeloupe (in West Indies:Lesser Antilles). I would like to ask you if I separate correctly the Cicadomorpha and Fulgoromorpha.
Fulgoromorpha has round or egg-shaped second antennal segment (pedicel) that bears a fine filamentous arista and bifurcate ("Y"-shaped) anal vein in the forewing. Is that enough to separate them?
Thank you for your help!
