Abstract


A total of 148 species in 35 genera of cicadas is reported for Thailand. Of these, 11 species and one genus (Muda) are reported for the first time from the country. Fifteen undescribed species were discovered (to be described at a later date), in our collections and among museum holdings, thereby adding to the diversity of the known cicada fauna of Thailand. Ten other species are removed from the Thai cicada fauna. Major areas of diversity are the northwestern region of the country and peninsular Thailand.
