Membracidae Checklist: Treehoppers

This page consists of a personal checklist of all Treehoppers (Membracidae) that I have encountered over the years. Most were identified with the kind assistance of Stuart McKamey, Matthew Wallace and Eli Wyman on Reddit. Some references were also made from NCSU Insect Museum: Membracidae.

All photos are of live subjects shot in the field, with the lateral view selected where available. Click on individual photos for larger views and views from other angles. As specimens were not collected, identifications were done purely based on photographs and may not be 100% accurate.

This page will be updated regularly, please let me know if you spot any mistakes.
