Abstract

The spittlebug genus Anyllis Kirkaldy (Hemiptera: Aphrophoridae), endemic to Australia, is redefined and new autapomorphies are proposed to support the monophyly of the genus. A new sensillum found on the expanded flagellar base of antennae of Anyllis species, named as ‘conical sensillum’, and a new male genitalic structure, named as ‘basal anal processes,’ are named. Anyllis is moved from the tribe Locrisini Lallemand of Cercopidae to the tribe Aphrophorini of Aphrophoridae. A new species, Anyllis spinostylus Liang sp. nov., is described and illustrated from Tasmania, Australia.
