oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - The cercopid genus Pseudomachaerota Melichar (Hemiptera: Cercopidae)

Volume 25, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789

An examination of Melichar's type disproves his assumption that it stood very close ("" steht sehr nahe"") to Apomachaerota E. Schmidt, 1907, a Malaysian genus of the family Machaerotidae, subfamily Enderleiniinae.
