The family cercopidae, though of world-wide distribution, has comparatively few representatives within our borders, and those few have been but imperfectly known, the literature on the subject being scattered and fragmentary, the generic references often incorrect, and the specific determinations, owing to the extreme variability in color of some species, and the striking similarity of color between others, rendered very questionable. Scarcely one of the more common forms but what has been referred to under at least four different genera and several have more than that number of specific names.
