Diversity and conservation status of prairie endemic Auchenorrhyncha (Homoptera) in alvars of the Great Lakes region

, : Diversity and conservation status of prairie endemic Auchenorrhyncha (Homoptera) in alvars of the Great Lakes region. Proceedings of the Entomological Society of Ontario 132: 39-56

Eighteen species of prairie endemic Auchenorrhyncha (Homoptera) representing three families: Cicadellidae (16 species); Caliscelidae (1); and Delphacidae (1), were recorded from alvar habitats in the Great Lakes region. The three alvar regions with the highest number of prairie endemic species were Northern Michigan (USA), Bruce Peninsula (Ontario) and Manitoulin and surrounding islands (Ontario). Numbers of species of prairie endemic Auchenorrhyncha varied from one alvar region to another and between sites within each region. Five species: Aflexia rubranura (DeLong); Memnonia panzeri Hamilton; Mocuellus americanus Emeljanov; Texananus marmor (Sanders and DeLong); and Caenodelphax nigriscutellata (Beamer) comb. n., were restricted to alvar habitats in the study area. Our data indicate that Auchenorrhyncha species are useful as indicators of alvar quality for conservation and management purposes.
