Auchenorrhyncha, the planthoppers and leafhoppers, take place in excessive density and species richness in just about all terrestrial ecosystems, forming an immense section of foodstuff webs. they could transmit plant pathogens comparable to viruses and mycoplasmas, and some species are one of the world's worst pests of cereals and different vegetation. as a result of the loss of a finished key, the valuable ecu fauna has lengthy been ignored by means of entomologists, and for this reason, the data in their existence heritage was once really small. Host family members, specifically, have been insufficiently recognized. This paintings summarizes an intensive facts assortment mixed with a commonly scattered literature on a wide geographical scale. For the 1st time, a scientific evaluation of phenology, foodstuff vegetation, habitat requisites, geographical and altitudinal distribution and fiscal value of all Auchenorrhyncha species recognized from Germany is equipped, in response to modern taxonomy. The guild composition of all plant teams on kinfolk and species point is analyzed and mentioned intimately. additional analyses care for existence options equivalent to host specificity, dispersal and existence cycles. The ebook is a hugely welcome synthesis and reference for all scholars of biodiversity in addition to for ecologists, entomologists, botanists and phytopathologists.

The description of the latter is mainly based upon slight differences in wing venation. Furthermore, there is a strong similarity to C. Wg. (see below).
Wagner, 1963 31 Kelisia irregulata Haupt, 1935 E VII – E X; egg, 1 gen. ). Widespread in southern and middle parts of Germany and fairly common in areas of Jurassic and Triassic limestone, notably in the Alps and their foothills, on the Swabian and Franconian Jura (locus typicus: Blaubeuren near Ulm), in Mainfranken and Thuringia; usually found in intermediate frequency on the host. At present, localities at the edge of the range include Bad Münstereifel, Osnabrück, Warburg, Göttingen, Nordhausen and Jena.

Adults are found on temporarily flooded sand and gravel banks along unchanneled rivers on willows, notably Salix viminalis and S. triandra. In Germany, this species occurs at the western and northern edge of the range, notably in the valleys of the Elbe and Rhine and their larger tributaries (near Dresden, Meißen, Leipzig, Merseburg, Halle, Stendal, Aschaffenburg, Wiesbaden and Bonn), as well as near Rinteln an der Weser.
