Kinnaridae Muir, 1925

Identification: The families Kinnaridae and Cixiidae are very similar. Kinnaridae can be distinguished by the broad subcostal cell of the fore wing. 

The three West-Palearctic species are easy to distinguish.


1a Cave-dwelling species, body pale (mainland Spain) -> Valenciolenda fadaforesta

1b Body black or brown (Canary Islands) -> 2

2a Pronotum with three keels, wings hyaline -> Kinnacana clara

2b Pronotum with five keels, wings with a black band -> Kinnoccia chromata
