Abstract

The dictyopharid planthopper genus Doryphorina Melichar, 1912 is revised on the base of examination of the type specimens deposited in Museum and Institute of Zoology, Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw. The genus includes three known species D. stali Melichar, 1912, D. minor Fennah, 1978, and D. subdeflexa Fennah, 1978. The rank of the two latter is elevated to specific status from subspecies of D. stali. Male genitalia of all species are described and illustrated for the first time. A diagnostic key is provided for differentiation of the known species in the genus.
