An emergence of Quintillia cf. vitripennis Karsch (Homoptera: Cicadidae) at Tierberg, near Prince Albert, Cape Province, was observed during September 1990. The density of cicadas was estimated at 376,6 ï¿½ 156 (S.D.) and biomass ca 0,059 kg ha -1. Male cicadas called from stations on the ground and seldom from perches on shrubs. A single instance of oviposition on a Galenia fruticosa (L.f.) Sond. twig was observed.
