Type Specimen Photos
Type images of Dictyopharid planthoppers
I am posting these on a separate page from the other planthopper type images because my other ilst was becoming quite long. Most of these images were acquired while my former graduate student, Rick Donovall was working on his master's thesis (completed, but not published).
Hyalodictyon obtusifrons Walker, 1851 (now Megadictya obtusifrons (Walker, 1851)). These photos taken by Mike Wilson of the type at the BMNH.
Ticida chamberlini Van Duzee, 1923 (now Ticrania chamberlini (Van Duzee, 1923)). This type is at the California Academy of Sciences. The photos are courtesy of Norm Penny. The specimen is from Mexico.
Timodema miracula Ball, 1909 (current status Ticida (Timodema) miracula (Ball, 1909)). I have no idea now why I only have this one partial habitus of the type, but the photo was taken by Stuart McKamey of the type specimen which is at the USNM.
The four images below are scans of photographs sent to me by Lois O'brien. They were taken by Carlos Vidano in Spinola's castle in Feb. 1971 during the O'Brien's visit to Turin.
Dictyophara gayi Spinola, 1852 (now Sicoris gayi (Spinola, 1852) - From Chile.
Cixius chilensis Spinola, 1852 (= Taractellus chilensis (Spinola, 1852)) - from Chile
Dictiophora [sic] rectirostris Spinola, 1852 (now Dictyopharoides rectirostris (Spinola, 1852) - Chile.
Pseudophana distinguenda Spinola, 1839 (now Nersia distinguenda (Spinola, 1839) - "Cayenne" (Brazil).
I will post more images of type specimens as time allows.
