Cercopidae Gallery

Cercopidae are commonly known as Froghoppers or Spittlebugs. and is, by far, the largest of the families within the Superfamily Cercopoidea.

Very little is known about these insects, many remain unidentified, and many will be new to Thailand.

This is the most comprehensive collection of Thai Cercopidae available. ALL photos were taken in Thailand, with the exception of the Mioscarta species which was taken at Tatai, Cambodia, very near to the Thai border, and there does exist one photo of the species from Chantaburi province.

I would like to thank Dr. Ai-Ping Liang for the majority of identifications, where held. Any errors, however, will be mine.
