SAKAKIBARA, Albino M and CREAO-DUARTE, Antônio J. Microschema Stål gen. reval. and a correction in the labelling of the type specimen of Hoplophora straminicolor Stål (Homoptera, Membracidae). Rev. Bras. Zool. [online]. 1996, vol.13, n.4, pp. 995-999. ISSN 0101-8175. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-81751996000400019.
The genus Microschema Stål, 1869 (type species: Hoplophora straminicolor Stål, 1862) is here reinstated and redescribed. Micropepla Sakakibara, 1979 is considered its new synonym. Microschema straminicolor (Stål, 1862), comb.n. is also redescribed and illustrated; Micropepla mourei Sakakibara, 1979, is a new synonym. The holotype of Hoplophora straminicolor Stål (in the Museum of Stockholm) was mislabelled. The correction is here made and the true type specimen duly labelled as Holotype.
