Abstract

A new tropiduchid genus of the tribe Eporini (Hemiptera: Fulgoromorpha: Tropiduchidae) is described from Yunnan Province, China: Paraepora Chang & Chen gen. nov.. Three new species: P. bifurca Chang & Chen, sp. nov., P. cultellata Chang & Chen, sp. nov. and P. tegula Chang & Chen, sp. nov., are described and illustrated. A checklist and key to the genera in tribe Eporini, and a key to species of the genus Paraepora are given.

The planthopper tribe Eporini Fennah (1982) (Hemiptera: Fulgoromorpha: Tropiduchidae) is relatively small group comprised of 12 genera and 24 species (Stål 1866; Melichar 1914; Distant 1917; Synave 1961; Fennah 1982; Williams 1981; Men et al. 2011). The tribe mainly occurs in the Oriental region and Neotropical region. General characteristics of the tribe are as follows: frons unicarinate, posterior margin of mesoscutellum angulate; tegmen macropterous or brachypterous, in macropterous M vein not associated with Cu1 basally, but in brachypterous usually so; nodal and subapical lines present; clavus extending two-thirds of length of tegmen; gonostyli symmetrical; first valvula of ovipositor devoid of teeth on ventral margin and with 2–4 teeth on dorsal margin; third valvula with teeth at apex and none on ventral margin. The tribe has consisted of 12 genera, which are presented in this report.

However, in the course of studying materials of the family Tropiduchidae from Yunnan Province, China, a new tropiduchid genus of the tribe Eporini was described, i.e., Paraepora gen. nov.. Also 3 new species: P. bifurca sp. nov., P. cultellata sp. nov. and P. tegula sp. nov., were described and illustrated. A checklist and key to the genera in the tribe Eporini, and a key to species of the genus Paraepora gen. nov. are given. So far, 13 genera are included in the tribe Eporini.

Materials and Methods

Morphological terminology follows Bourgoin & Huang (1990). Dry specimens were used for the descriptions and illustrations. External morphology was observed by a stereoscopic microscope and characters were measured with an ocular micrometer. Measurements are given in millimeters. The genital segments of the examined specimens were macerated in 10% KOH, then washed in water and transferred to glycerin. Illustrations of the specimens were made by a Leica MZ 12.5 stereomicroscope. Photographs were taken by a Leica D-lux 3 digital camera. The digital images were then imported into Adobe Photoshop 8.0 for labeling and plate composition.

The type specimens and material examined are deposited in the Institute of Entomology, Guizhou University, Guiyang, China (GUGC).

  • Etymology

    The genus name, which is feminine, is a combination of “para-” (which means parallel, beside or near) and “Epora” (name of a similar genus), indicating that the new genus is similar to the genus Epora Walker.

  • Host Plant

    Unknown.

  • Distribution

    China (Yunnan).

  • Remarks

    This new genus is similar to Epora Walker, 1857, in: i) vertex broader at base than long in midline, with subtle median carina or no carina (Figs. 2, 5, 8, 11); ii) forewings with complete oblique transverse veinlets in costal cell, with two ranks of transverse veins in membrane, forming apical cells and subapical cells (Figs. 12, 15, 19, 29, 39); iii) gonostyli with a triangular process on upper margin, with a hooked process, lateroventrally directed (Figs. 13–14, 21–22, 31–32, 41–42). But this new genus can be distinguished from the latter by: i) pronotum with one median carina, not reaching anterior margin (pronotum with two median carinae in Epora) (Figs. 2, 5, 8, 11); ii) forewings less than 2.5 times as long as their maximum width, costal cell broad, with 6–8 oblique transverse veinlets (forewings more 2.5 times longer than the maximum width, costal cell narrower, with 13–16 oblique transverse veinlets in Epora) (Figs. 12, 15, 19, 29, 39) ; iii) gonostyli long, dorsal margin with a hooked-triangular process near apex (gonostyli short, usually not reanhing to the tip of anal tube in Epora) (Figs. 13–14, 21–22, 31–32, 41–42).
