Abstract

A new genus and species of the asiracine tribe Platysystatini (Hemiptera: Fulgoromorpha: Delphacidae), Pichinchana gilletti from Ecuador, are described. A key to the platysystatine genera is provided. The relationships of this species to other group members and its biology are discussed. (© 2013 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
