Abstract

Background

The cicadas of the Indian subcontinent, like many other insects in the region, have remained understudied since the early part of the 20th Century, and await modern taxonomic, systematic and phylogenetic treatment. This paper presents an updated systematic catalogue of cicadas (Hemiptera: Cicadidae) from India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar, Nepal and Sri Lanka, the first in over a century.

New information

This paper treats 281 species, including: India and Bangladesh (189 species), Bhutan (19 species), Myanmar (81 species), Nepal (46 species) and Sri Lanka (22 species). For each species all recognized junior synonyms are included with information on the type material and additional specimens where relevant. The global distributional range and notes on the taxonomy of each species are included where appropriate. Two lists are provided: (1) species known to occur in India and Bangladesh (treated as a geographic unit), Bhutan, Myanmar, Nepal and Sri Lanka; and (2) species previously listed from these countries in error. A bibliography of species descriptions is provided, with the papers containing the original descriptions provided where copyright allows.

Introduction

We share our planet with an estimated 8.7 million species (Mora et al. 2011), of which approximately 80% await scientific description. Insects, although understudied, are known to account for over half the world’s described biodiversity (Foottit and Adler 2009), and likely constitute a much greater proportion of the undescribed biodiversity. The cicadas (Hemiptera: Cicadidae) of the Indian subcontinent, like many other insects in the region, have remained understudied since the early part of the 20th Century and await, for the most part, modern taxonomic, systematic and phylogenetic treatment.

The first illustrated publication dealing with the insect fauna of India was “An epitome of the natural history of the insects of India and the islands in the Indian Seas” by Donovan (1800), which included many superb illustrations made by the author. One cicada species (Cicada indica Donovan 1800) was described by Donovan in his epitome, although the illustration is dated as 1st of February 1804 (Fig. 1). The original description states that the specimen was collected in Bengal, a claim doubted by Distant: "According to Donovan, a single specimen of this species was found in Bengal by Mr. Fichtel, and deposited in the Imperial Cabinet at Vienna, but that habitat I consider liable to the greatest doubt." (Distant 1889a). Donovan may have confused Fabricius’ label “Indiis” as India, when it could refer to the West Indies, East Indies or occasionally to Africa. In the present study Cicada indica is listed as unlikely to be from the Indian subcontinent, being synonymised with Tacua speciosa speciosa (Illiger, 1800) which is found in Indonesia and Malaysia.

Figure 1.

Donovan’s illustration of Cicada indica Donovan 1800. This stunning species is a junior synonym of Tacua speciosa speciosa (Illiger, 1800) and is not found on the Indian subcontinent, an example of the historical misattribution of species from the “East Indies” with India.

By far the most influential figure in the history of cicadas in India is William Lucas Distant (12 November 1845 – 4 February 1922). Distant worked at the Natural History Museum, then the British Museum (Natural History) from 1889 to 1920, during which time he described a tremendous number of insect species. Over 100 cicada species which occur on the Indian subcontinent and were described by Distant are currently recognised as valid. His most significant works relevant to this fauna were: “A Monograph of Oriental Cicadidae” (Distant 1889b, Distant 1891, Distant 1892c); “The fauna of British India, including Ceylon and Burma” (Distant 1906c); and “A Synonymic Catalogue of Homoptera, Part I - Cicadidae” (Distant 1906b). In particular “The fauna of British India, including Ceylon and Burma” (Distant 1906c) provided the first treatment of the region as a whole, with 148 cicada species recognised in 44 genera. This was followed by an appendix (Distant 1916) which listed an additional 24 species and 3 new genera for the region, bringing the total to 172 cicada species in 47 genera.

Apart from a few isolated species descriptions, the cicada fauna of the Indian subcontinent has not been subjected to a detailed taxonomic and systematic review since Distant (1906c), Distant (1916), hence, it is highly likely that many unrecognized and undescribed cicada species exist in this region.

This study serves as a modern reference point for the cicada fauna of India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar, Nepal and Sri Lanka, and hopefully, provides a backbone to recording efforts and studies of the underlying taxonomy. Pakistan, formerly a part of “British India” has been excluded from full review in this catalogue as it has recently been updated by Ahmed and Sanborn (2010), however the fauna are briefly compared.

The checklists presented here are full of compromises but our guiding intention has been to present all the relevant information in a manner that is as compact and informative as possible. No doubt there are errors which have crept in, or which have not been discovered in the previous literature, and we welcome all suggestions to rectify any errors or omissions. To aide future studies the next incarnation will be digital, and the list of species is already in the process of migrating to a website, where updates will be maintained as and when changes occur. The website will also allow the community to share images and information on each species, providing an up-to-date resource, hopefully for many years to come.

Historically the regions making up the Indian subcontinent have had a complex nomenclature (Figs 2, 3), further compounded by different authors interpreting locality labels to mean different regions. In particular the confusion between East India, East Indies, India, Indo-China and Indonesia, will mean that some species included in this list are unlikely to occur in the focal region, but are included until further study proves otherwise.

Materials and methods

Checklists

The checklist was based on the “The fauna of British India, including Ceylon and Burma” (Distant 1906c) and its supplement (Distant 1916), the four catalogues which list the global cicada literature (Distant 1906b, Metcalf 1963, Duffels and van der Laan 1985, Sanborn 2014) and the material housed at the Natural History Museum, London. In addition species which have been described after 2010 were incorporated by searching Google Scholar (https://scholar.google.co.uk/) and ScienceDirect (http://www.sciencedirect.com/) using a combination of “India”, “Bangladesh”, “Bhutan”, “Myanmar”, “Nepal”, “Sri Lanka”, and “cicada” and “Cicadidae”. The checklist is based on either the locality of the type specimen, the locality of specimens whose identity has been verified or substantial literature evidence. This checklist follows the higher taxonomy of Sanborn (2014)​ with updated generic combinations including current information as of September 2015. Institutional abbreviations are summarized in Table 1.

Due to the significant gap since the last major reviews by Distant, and the dramatic changes in the geographic boundaries of the countries involved (Figs 2, 3), two lists have been developed:

(1) Species present in India and Bangladesh (treated here as a single unit), Bhutan, Myanmar, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

(2) Species historically included in the countries listed above, but on analysis are very unlikely to be present in these countries, with reasons for their exclusion listed in the notes.

We have not considered the cicada fauna of Pakistan as these species have recently been studied (Ahmed and Sanborn 2010).

Notes: 

Authority: Distant 1891; Metcalf (1963) lists Northern India in reference to Atkinson (1884), however according to Distant (1891) "Mr. Atkinson* states that "the Indian Museum possesses a specimen" of C. operculata, Carreno, but this is probably erroneous, as he writes that the species was recorded from N. India, though Walker perhaps the greatest obscurantist who has yet appeared in entomology gave no locality to the specimens he identified under Carreno's name, without any reference to the place or manner of their description."

Notes: 

Authority: Distant 1892c; Lectotype was designated by Beuk (1996). There are an additional 3 male (2 MSNG; 1 BMNH) and 1 female (MSNG) paralectotypes, however only the examined material is included in this paper. Not from India: Sanborn (2014) states India in reference to Hua (2000) but no other records from India exist, it is likely the result of a mistranslation of Indo-China. The type locality (Carin Asciuii Ghecu, Tennasserim) is not near the India/Myanmar border.

Notes: 

Authority: Distant 1881; Metcalf (1963) stated "India" in reference to Atkinson (1886) who was referring to the type specimen from Upper Tenasserim (Myanmar). Metcalf (1963) also listed India in reference to Mathur (1953) who stated "India.-Burma: Katha, Mohnyin Res." as a part of then "British India". Listings of India since then are likely to be in reference to published localities, most likely that from Metcalf (1963). In addition, Sanborn (2014) listed Pakistan and Bangladesh in reference to a specimen collected in Chittagong (former "East Pakistan" now Bangladesh), however the identification of the specimen from Chaudhry et al. (1970) (Aola sp.? bindusara) has not been confirmed thus the Bangladesh distribution is not conclusive at this point.

Notes: 

Authority: Distant 1905a; Not from India: Metcalf (1963) listed India in reference to Mathur (1953), in which it references a specimen "India.-Burma: Tavoy" with Burma being considerd part of "British India". The type locality (Thaungyang Valley, Tennasserim) and Mathur's locality Tavoy (now Dawei) are both in the far south of Myanmar thus this species has been removed from the Indian list. Subsequent "India" localities as stated in Sanborn (2014), in reference to Boulard (2001b), Sanborn et al. (2007) and Lee (2008), are likely to have resulted from this initial error. Hayashi (1993) excluded this species from India.

Notes: 

Authority: Distant 1888c; In the NHMUK there is a male specimen bearing a type label, however this male was described later by Distant (1913b). Holotype is a female from "Tenasserim: Houngdarau Valley" (MSNG). Not from India: Sanborn (2014) states India in reference to Sanborn et al. (2007) and Lee (2008), however their inclusion of India is in reference to previous distributions that may be incorrect, having resulted from Indo-China being included as India. Further evidence is required before this species can be included in the fauna of this region.
