Neither Menoscinae nor Lophopinae, a new genus that challenges the current classification of the Lophopidae Stal, 1866 (Hemiptera: Fulgoromorpha)

Abstract : The monotypic genus Silvispina M. Wang & Soulier-Perkins, gen. n. and new species S. changpotou M. Wang & Soulier-Perkins, sp. n. belonging to the family Lophopidae Stål, 1866, from Yunnan Province in China, is described and illustrated. The peculiarity of the first metatarsal segment of this genus is stressed and the taxonomic position of this new genus is discussed. The ornamentation and shape of metatibia and fi rst tarsal segment (the characters that currently distinguish the subfamilies Menoscinae and Lophopinae) do not agree with either subfamily and the new genus is placed as incertae sedis in the Lophopidae. The genus Ridesa Schumacher, 1915 is removed from the family Lophopidae and placed in the Achilidae.
