LENCIONI-NETO, Frederico  and  SAKAKIBARA, Albino M.. A new species of Enchenopa (Hemiptera: Membracidae) from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. Zoologia (Curitiba) [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.3, pp.257-259. ISSN 1984-4689.

Enchenopa luizae sp. nov. (holotype female from Brazil, State of São Paulo, municipality of São José dos Campos, Parque Natural Municipal Augusto Ruschi at 23°04'05°S", 45°56'22"W, 06.VIII.2011, R. La Rosa leg. deposited in DZUP) is described and diagnosed from the Atlantic Forest Vale do Paraíba, São Paulo, Brazil. The new species is very similar to Enchenopa monoceros (Germar, 1821) in overall aspects but much larger and with inconspicuous lateral secondary carinae. The fourth instar nymph is also briefly characterized.
