oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - The genus lobocentrus Stal (Membracidae)

Volume 15, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



Since 1870 the lobocentrus Stal was descriptionbed and classifies differently by various researchers. The significant feature of the genus is the well developed, downwardly produced lobe of the posterior process, which almost or quite touches the apex of the scutellum. It seems desirable to review each species of the genus before descriptionbing the new species from South Africa. It differs in very important particulars from L. suffulta Dist., but more material is needed for further study.
