Abstract

A new species of Kunzeana Oman, 1949 (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Typhlocybinae), Kunzeana zantedeschia sp. nov. is described and illustrated based on specimens from Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil. The new species differs from its congeners by a membranous sheath surrounding the aedeagal stem and a pair of short dorsal processes at aedeagus base.
