The new species is morphologically most similar to <em>O. </em>(<em>O.</em>)<em> rimulosus</em> (Haaf, 1957). The latter is redescribed and illustrated to enable accurate recognition of both species. Based on this work the following taxonomic changes are proposed: Three species are transferred from the subgenus <em>Afromorgus</em> Scholtz, 1986 to the nominotypical subgenus: <em>O</em>. (<em>O</em>.) <em>inclusus </em>(Walker 1858), <em>O</em>. (<em>O</em>.) <em>maissouri</em> (Haaf, 1945a) and <em>O. </em>(<em>O.</em>)<em> rimulosus </em>(Haaf, 1957). Lastly, we include an annotated catalogue of the species of the nominotypical subgenus <em>Omorgus</em> known from the Oriental and Palaearctic regions.</span></span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> WERNER P.

The species assumes the following characteristics: open C-shaped body; head offset from body; lateral field with three incisures, pharyngeal and tail regions irregularly areolated; stylet 18.6–20.7 µm long; pharyngeal gland not extending over intestine; fibrous tissue present in the intestine; post-anal intestinal sac present; elongate-subcylindroid tail, bluntly conoid terminus, lack of striations, and containing 34–44 annuli. In addition, scanning electron microscopy was used to elucidate some morphological details, but only some juveniles were observed. Partial 18S rRNA, ITS, and 28S D2–D3 expansion sequences were amplified with universal primers and deposited in GenBank under accession numbers ON622716, ON622717, and ON622714, respectively. Here, this species was identified as <em>T. dispersus </em>[(Siddiqi &amp; Sharma, 1995) Geraert, 2011].</span></span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> YAN CHEN YU-CHUN HAN HUI-ZHONG WANG HUI XIE CHUN-LING XU Copyright (c) 2023 2023-02-02 2023-02-02 5231 5 552 566 10.11646/zootaxa.5231.5.4 <p><strong>Family Nogodinidae (Hemiptera: Fulgoroidea) from the Canary Islands, with the description of a new species of the genus <em>Morsina</em> Melichar, 1902</strong></p> https://www.mapress.com/zt/article/view/zootaxa.5231.5.5 <p lang="en-GB" align="left"><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-family: Times New Roman, serif;"><span style="font-size: small;">Planthopper family Nogodinidae is recorded for the first time from the Canary Islands after a new species, <em>Morsina</em> <em>gomerae</em> <strong>sp. nov.</strong>, described from the dry landscapes of La Gomera island. <em>Mikewilsonia</em> Holzinger, 2019 is placed in synonymy under <em>Morsina</em> Melichar, 1902. <em>Mikewilsonia</em> <em>kunzi</em> Holzinger, 2019 is transferred to <em>Morsina </em>with a new combination proposed—<em>Morsina</em> <em>kunzi</em> (Holzinger, 2019), <strong>comb. nov.</strong></span></span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> VLADIMIR M.

Combination of plesiomorphic and apomorphic characters and other differences from all extinct and extant lagriine tribes allows to establish the new tribe Archaeolupropini <strong>trib. nov.</strong> (type genus <em>Archaeoluprops</em>), which is probably a basal group in relation to the non-basal clade Lagriini–Chaerodini–Lupropini–Pycnocerini–Goniaderini–(probably Gonialaenini) + Laenini. All Baltic amber lagriine tribes are absent in extant faunas of middle latitudes of Europa.</span></span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> MAXIM V. NABOZHENKO EVGENY E. PERKOVSKY VITALIY YU.
