DOMAHOVSKI, Alexandre Cruz  and  CAVICHIOLI, Rodney Ramiro. A new species of Sulcana (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Gyponini) from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest. Zoologia (Curitiba) [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.5, pp.423-427. ISSN 1984-4670.

Sulcana cunicula sp. nov. is described and illustrated based on four specimens from municipality of São José dos Pinhais, state of Paraná, Brazil. This species can be distinguished from others in the genus by the following characters: (1) head produced, slightly shorter than median length of pronotum; (2) aedeagus bearing a pair of acute ventral processes at mid-length of shaft and extended dorsally. A new record to Sulcana brevis DeLong & Freytag and a key to the three species of the genus are also presented.
