New World delphacid genera in the tribe Delphacini

[Back to Higher classification of Delphacidae]
[back to Planthoppers of North America]

Family Delphacidae Leach, 1815

Subfamily Delphacinae Leach, 1815

Tribe Delphacini Leach, 1815: 125

There are about 80 New World genera, depending on count details (Liburnia might be excluded as invalid).

Recent additions: added the new genera Astatometopon and Neodelphax, and now less-recent genera of  Ampliphax and Pyrophagus; Matutinus was preoccupied and has been replaced by Distantinus. Tragediana Campodonico, 2017, Euryburnia Emeljanov, 2019, and Melaniphax Bartlett 2019 were recently added. Undoubtedly there will be more changes coming.

Each of the genera will be linked to its own page.  Click on links for additional information about that genus.  I have included a couple of genera, significant from an economic standpoint that does not occur in the New World.
