Examination of the materials on Cavatorium dumetorum (Dlabola, 1981), including the type specimens, revealed that Dlabola (1981) based his description of this species on mixed type series. C. dumetorum sensu stricto is clearly distinguished by male anal tube with latero-apical processes and ventral phallobase lobe narrowing apically. Another specie...

scientific note The study was carried out to determine Aphrophoridae species in Eastern Anatolia in 2018. Five species were collected by sweeping net on herbs. The collected specimens were identified as: Aphrophora salicina (Goeze, 1778), Lepyronia coleoptrata (Linnaeus, 1758), Paraphilaenus notatus (Mulsant & Rey, 1855), Philaenus spumarius (Linna...

An illustrated dichotomous identification key for a total of 54 Auchenorrhyncha species of Iran is presented. The studied species have been recorded as pests and vectors of diseases to fruit trees. Twenty nine records were contributed to Iranian orchards and 25 of which were from other parts of the world. Hence, the latter group can be considered a...

The 22 species of Opiliones recorded from Iran are known from four families: one species of Dicranolasmatidae, five species of Nemastomatidae, 15 species of Phalangiidae, and a single species of Sclerosomatidae. Five of these are recorded for the first time from the country: Dicranolasma ponticum Gruber, 1998, Opilio nabozhenkoi Snegovaya, 2010, Ph...

The first part of this paper provides a historical review of the classification of the family Tettigometridae, including the description of a new tribe, Plesiometrini trib. nov. to accommodate three Afrotropical genera of the subfamily Tettigometrinae. The name Nototettigometra Muir 1924, is proposed to replace Hilda Kirkaldy 1900, homonym of Hilda...

Tibicen plebejus (Scopoli, 1763) and T. esfandiarii Dlabola, 1970 are the only two species of the genus Tibicen in Iran. In this study, the morphology and distribution of both species in the country are compared and an identification key is provided. Tibicen esfandiarii is usually larger in size and lighter in colour than T. plebejus but overlap in...
