Name

  • Sweta Viraktamath & Dietrich, 2011: 1.

Type species

Sweta hallucinata Viraktamath & Dietrich, 2011, by original designation.

Diagnosis

Small size. Crown of the head strongly elevated above the anterior margin of the pronotum. Ocelli vestigial. Pronotum enlarged, strongly convex, and extended to the scutellar suture. Forewing broad, tectiform, with elongate, sinuate distal segments of veins R and M, closed preapical cells absent. Hind wing with the submarginal vein complete and veins RP and MA confluent. First hind tarsomere acuminate. Aedeagus fused to the connective. Female second valvulae asymmetrical.

Distribution

Oriental region (Fig. 19).

Remarks

This dikraneurine genus is remarkable because it has a feature unknown in other typhlocybinae but present in another leafhopper subfamily (Signoretiinae), i.e. the elongate pronotum. A full description of the genus was given by Viraktamath and Dietrich (2011)[1].
