Cicadidae Family of cicada insects

Cicadidae, the true cicadas, is the largest family of cicadas, with more than 3,200 species worldwide. The oldest known definitive fossils are from the Paleocene, a nymph from the Cretaceous Burmese amber has been attributed to the family, but could also belong to the Tettigarctidae.

<i>Neotibicen</i> Genus of true bugs

Cicadas of the genus Neotibicen are large-bodied insects of the family Cicadidae that appear in summer or early fall in eastern North America. Common names include cicada, harvestfly, jar fly, and the misnomer locust. In 2015, these species were moved from the genus Tibicen, which was redefined in the twenty-first century to include only a few European species, while species from the Western United States and Mexico are now placed in a separate genus, Hadoa. In addition, several former Neotibicen species have been moved to the genus Megatibicen.

<i>Pomponia</i> (cicada) Genus of true bugs

Pomponia is a genus of cicadas from Asia. A group of species previously placed in Pomponia, containing the largest cicada species found on earth, have recently been moved to Megapomponia. However, the remaining species still form a very heterogeneous group and Duffels and Hayashi (2006) mentioned that several species should probably be transferred to genera like Terpnosia and Leptosemia.

Cicadinae Subfamily of true bugs

The Cicadinae are a subfamily of cicadas, containing the translucent cicadas. They are robust cicadas and many have gaudy colors, but they generally lack the butterfly-like opaque wing markings found in many species of the related Tibiceninae.

Cryptotympanini Tribe of true bugs

Cryptotympanini is a tribe of cicadas in the family Cicadidae. They are found in the Nearctic, Palearctic, Indomalaya, Oceania, and Afrotropics.

<i>Cicadetta</i> Genus of true bugs

Cicadetta is a genus of generally small-bodied annual cicadas widespread across portions of the Palearctic, Indomalayan, and Afrotropical realms. In older scientific and taxonomic literature, this genus was popularly referred to as Melampsalta. These cicadas occur in a diverse spectrum of habitats, although most taxa are typically associated with weedy meadows and tallgrass prairie ecosystems. Several related species from North America were recently transferred to the genus Cicadettana.

<i>Megapomponia</i> Genus of true bugs

Megapomponia is a genus of cicadas from Southeast Asia containing the world's largest cicadas species. It now belongs to the subtribe Megapomponiina and was erected by Michel Boulard to accommodate the world's largest cicada species, Megapomponia imperatoria, the type species of Megapomponia. Boulard included seven species in Megapomponia. Lee and Sanborn, however, re-transferred two species to Pomponia, Pomponia decem and Pomponia rajah.

Dundubiini Tribe of true bugs

The Dundubiini are a tribe of cicadas in the family Cicadidae, found in the Palearctic, Indomalaya, Australasia, and the Western Pacific. There are at least 180 described species in Dundubiini.


Tibicen is an historical genus name in the insect family Cicadidae that was originally published by P. A. Latreille in 1825 and formally made available in a translation by A. A. Berthold in 1827. The name was placed on the Official Index of Rejected and Invalid Generic Names in Zoology by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature in 2021. Certain European cicada species that were included by some authors in this genus at the time of its suppression are now listed under genus Lyristes Horváth, 1926. Many other formerly-Tibicen species are found in the genera Auritibicen Lee, 2015, Hadoa Moulds, 2015 Megatibicen Sanborn and Heath, 2016, and Neotibicen Hill and Moulds, 2015.

<i>Hadoa</i> Genus of true bugs

The genus Hadoa comprises large-bodied Cicadidae occurring in Western North America. Until recently, these species were in the genus Tibicen, which has now been redefined so as to include only a few European species, while most species from the Eastern and Central US are now placed in Neotibicen and Megatibicen.

<i>Megatibicen</i> Genus of true bugs

Megatibicen is a genus of cicadas in the family Cicadidae, with about 10 described species. Until 2016, these species were included in the genus Tibicen and then briefly in Neotibicen. The species formerly of genera Ameritibicen Lee, 2016 and Gigatibicen Lee, 2016 are now considered species of Megatibicen Sanborn & Heath, 2016.

Abroma is a genus of cicadas in the family Cicadidae. There are at least 20 described species in Abroma.

Orapa is a genus of cicadas in the family Cicadidae, found in tropical Africa. About five described species are in Orapa. Orapa is the only genus of the tribe Orapini.

Panka is a genus of cicadas in the family Cicadidae. About nine described species are in Panka.

Plautilla is a genus of cicadas in the family Cicadidae, found in the Neotropics. There are at least three described species in Plautilla.

Pagiphora is a genus of cicadas in the family Cicadidae, found in the western Palearctic. There are about five described species in Pagiphora.

<i>Dundubia</i> Genus of true bugs

Dundubia is a genus of cicadas in the subfamily Cicadinae and the type genus of the tribe Dundubiini.

Becquartina is a genus of Asian cicadas in the tribe Gaeanini and the monotypic subtribe Becquartinina. This genus includes species that were previously placed in Gaeana and are sometimes known as "butterfly cicadas" due to their colourful wings.

Macrosemia is a genus of Asian cicadas in the tribe Dundubiini. Species records are from Taiwan and the eastern Asian mainland, including Indo-China.

<i>Lyristes</i> Genus of cicada

Lyristes is a genus of cicadas from Europe and the Middle East. It was described by G. Horvath in 1926.
