NOVA COELHO, Luci Boa. The male of Nancyana curva (Homoptera: Cicadellidae) from southeastern Brazil. Rev. biol. trop [online]. 1999, vol.47, n.4, pp. 1021-1023. ISSN 0034-7744.
The adult male of Nancyana curva is described and illustrated for the first time, based on four specimens from the states of Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais. Male diagnostic characters include the presence of a pair of inner projections on the dorsal lobe of the pygofer, and a dorsal pair of short subapical processes on the aedeagus. The female color pattern is similar to that of male, with dark brown bands on torax not so clear.
