INHS entomologists Chris Dietrich and Dmitry Dmitriev have published the first comprehensive treatise on the diverse leafhopper genus Zyginama, species of which are distributed from the central USA to northern South America. The authors provide a key for identification of the 74 species of the genus, descriptions of 43 new species (including one from Illinois), an estimate of the phylogenetic relationships among species, and summaries of their distributions and host plants. Illustrations, including color photos of adults, are provided for each species.
The full title of the work is Review of the Species of New World Erythroneurini (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Typhlocybinae) II. Genus Zyginama
