A new genus representing a new tribe of the family Issidae (Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha: Fulgoroidea) from the forest canopy of French Guiana

V.M. Gnezdilov

Abstract. Guianaphryna dendrophila gen. et sp. nov. is described from the forest canopy of Northeastern French Guiana and represents a new tribe, Guianaphrynini trib. nov., of the subfamily Thioniinae. This tribe is characterized by the peculiar structure of the forewings bearing pustules and lacking transverse veins, and of the 3-lobed hind wings with an intermediate poorly sclerotized area between the remigial and remigio-vannal lobes which is replacing the cubital cleft, as well as with a strong intermediate vein between CuP and Pcu at the middle of the wing and rudimentary furcation of the second anal vein.
Key words: planthoppers, systematics, morphology, Neotropics, canopy, Issidae, Thioniinae, new tribe, new genus, new species
