First record of the leafhopper genus Varicopsella Hamilton, 1980 (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Macropsinae) in China, with descriptions of a new subgenus and new species, a checklist, and a key to species.

Li H, Dai RH, Li ZZ - J. Insect Sci. (2014)

Bottom Line: The new subgenus and new species are described and illustrated.They can be distinguished mainly by characteristics of the fore wings with two anteapical cells; weak dorsoventrally flattened body; aedeagal shaft with paired apical processes on ventral margin; and the shape of the dorsal connective.An updated checklist and an illustrated key for identification of the species of Varicopsella along with geographical distributions of the species are given.
