SUSTAINING THE WORLD THROUGH SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Type Specimen Photos


Images of primary types of planthoppers (holo-, lecto-, or syntypes)

Here I will be posting photos of primary type specimens that I have examined and photographed to any reason.  I will post them under their original combination, but annotate the current combination when different.

In addition to the photos posted below, I have some images of primary types of dictyopharids posted here.  These are posted on a separate page since my list of primary type photos is beginning to become long.

Chloriona nigrifrons Van Duzee, 1909.  Photos courtesy of Norm Penny, California Academy of Sciences Natural History Museum.  This taxon does not belong in Chloriona.  I believe I know what it really is - I'll publish on it when I am sure.

Type specimen of Pseudomacrocorupha wagneri Muir, 1930 (Delphacidae) from Argentina.  Photos courtesy of Gunvi Lindberg, Swedish Museum of Natural History (where the specimen resides).

A figure with additional views, including a photo of the label information, are here.  The specimen is a male, but apparently the genitalia are overcleared and their structure is no longer discernible.

Syndelphax pero Fennah, 1971 (Currently Metadelphax pero).

Additional views from Gonzon and Bartlett (2008) are here:

Tetrasteira minuta Muir, 1926 from Brazil.

Tetrasteira minuta Muir, 1926 holotype Delphacidae Tetrasteirini

Specimen data:  “Belem, Para/June, 1924 // F. X. Williams/Collector”.  It is a male and at the BPBM.  The genitalia are dissected and embedded in balsam.

A figure for an upcoming manuscript with several views is here.

Other planthoppers (not delphacids)

Nogodinidae

Here is the type specimen of Flata reticulata Fabricius, 1803, courtesy of  Niels P. Kristensen, Natural History Museum of Denmark, University of Copenhagen.  This is the type species of the genus Nogodina, which is, of course, the type genus of the family Nogodinidae.  The two lower labels are in the handwriting of Ms E. Zimsen, author of the 1964 book 'The Type Material of I. C. Fabricius'.

I will post more images of type specimens as time allows.
