Higher Taxa of Treehoppers
To access the lower level ranks (valid genera and species), one may use the Search box (above) or browse Genera. For a list of genera included within a given tribe, see its “Taxonomic constituents” near the bottom of the Taxon Page for that tribe, but note that a few “unplaced” genera are listed under a family or subfamily.
For details about Taxon Pages and search results, see Search Taxa.
This page provides access to our Taxon Pages for the higher groups (families, subfamilies, and tribes) in the taxonomic hierarchy of treehoppers. These higher groups include the three families (Aetalionidae, Melizoderidae, and Membracidae) and their subordinate subfamilies and tribes. In zoological nomenclature, scientific names of families end in the suffix “-idae;” subfamilies end in “-inae;” and tribes end in “-ini.” All higher groups include one or more genera, and each genus in turn includes one or more species.
The Browse option, below, lists all higher families, subfamilies, and tribes currently recognized as valid in the nomenclatural classification of our database.
