Auchenorrhyncha is the scientific name of the hemipteran suborder that includes planthoppers, cicadas, spittlebugs, leafhoppers, and treehoppers (Insecta: Hemiptera). Planthoppers belong to the Infraorder Fulgoromorpha [a group not included in the Treehoppers database]. Treehoppers and the remaining groups belong to the infraorder Cicadomorpha.
