Abstract:   (561 Views)
The genus Cicadula Zetterstedt is reported for the first time from Pakistan with a newly recorded Cicadula simlaensis Viraktamath & Yeshwanth. In addition, Platymetopius fidelis (Distant) is also rediscovered from Pakistan and studied here. A brief diagnosis along with the digital photographs of the habitus and male genitalia of both species are provided. General distribution of these species in both Palaearctic and Oriental regions is also briefly discussed.
