Abstract
  • Two new species of cicada hatchlings in Burmese and Dominican amber are described as Novicicada burmanica n. gen., n. sp. and N. youngi n. gen., n. sp. in the new collective genus Novicicada n. gen. (Hemiptera: Cicadidae). Diagnostic characters of the new genus are an elongate, flattened body, all antennomeres of subequal width, elongate procoxae, enlarged profemurs with spurs and spines, foretibiae with spurs and spines and the foretarsi subapically attached to the foretibiae. A comparison of the forelegs of the fossil hatchlings with an extant hatchling of the periodical cicada, Magicicada septendecim (Fisher) reveals a remarkable degree of morphological conservatism over 100 million years. A brief review of fossil cicadas is presented.
