Abstract: The Icelandic fauna of Auchenorrhyncha and Psylloidea was assessed at 14 locations in the south, west and north of the country in August 2013. In total, 1,556 individuals belonging to six species were recorded: Javesella pellucida, Ribautiana ulmi, Edwardsiana rosae, Cicadula quadrinotata, Macrosteles laevis and Jassargus pseudocellaris. Edwardsiana rosae and R. ulmi have only been found in Reykjavík, while the other species are all widespread and common on Iceland. Two further species known to occur on Iceland were not recorded: Evacanthus interruptus and Philaenus spumarius, which both have very restricted distributions. Additionally, with the finding of Trioza anthrisci Burckhardt (Hemiptera: Triozidae) the first psyllid species was recorded from Iceland. One female was found near the airport of the northern town of Akureyri. Some of this species’ main host plants (Angelica sylvestris and the introduced Anthriscus sylvestris) are widespread in the coastal lowlands, but might not have been adequately sampled during earlier investigations. Because only one individual was found, and because of its proximity to an airport, the native status of the species for Iceland remains to be determined, but is not unlikely given its northern occurrence in Scandinavia.

Bisher sind 12 Hefte und 1 Supplementheft erschienen (siehe Archiv). Ab dem Heft 13 (2013) erscheint die Zeitschrift als Online-Zeitschrift (open access) an der Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg.
The Journal „Cicadina“ (formerly „Beiträge zur Zikadenkunde“) is a forum for covering the fields of ecology and biology, systematics and taxonomy as well as zoogeography and faunistics, published in German or English. It focuses on Fulgoromorpha (planthoppers), Cicadomorpha (leafhoppers) as well as on Psylloidea (jumping plant lice) and other groups which are associated systematically or ecologically. So far 17 issues and 1 supplement volume were published (see below and archive). With issue 13 (2013) the journal is an open access journal hosted by the Martin-Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (Germany).
