oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - The Naud species of South African Cicadellidae (Hemiptera). 1. Species assigned to the genera Bythoscopus Germar, 1833, Parabolitus Naud , 1926, and Gcaleka Naud , 1926
In 1926 Naudï¿½ published the first comprehensive monograph on the Cicadellidae of South Africa. Apart from transcribing the original descriptionptions of all the species of leafhoppers previously known from this region, he also descriptionbed 71 new species collected by F. W. Pettey in the Western Cape, J. C. Faure in the Orange Free State and E. S. Cogan and C. B. Hardenberg in Natal. Unfortunately Naude did not deposit the types of these species in a museum or similar institution, but kept them in a small private collection where they were not available for study for many years. Only recently, in November 1971, he donated this collection to the National Collection of Insects, Plant Protection Research Institute, Pretoria and the present author is very grateful to the Director of this institute for permission to study the type specimens.
