Section Resarch articles

Composition of middle-summer cicadinas fauna (90 species from 3 families: Cicadellidae – 75 species (45 genera), Delphacidae – 11 (9 genera) and Aphrophoridae – 4 (3 genera)), together with data on the relative abundance for each of species. Psammotettix kamtshaticus Vilbaste, 1980, syn. nov. was synonymized with Psammotettix poecilus (Flor, 1861).
