ResumenThe genus Macropsis was founded by Lewis in 1835 to hold two species, Cicada virescens F. and Cicada flavicollis L. which were placed in separate divisions. In 1837 Burmeister engaged in splitting up Germar's genus Bythoscopus, erected the sub-genera Oncopsis and Pediopsis with Macropsis Lewis as the synonym of each. He placed C. flavicollis L. together with other species in the first subgenus whilst C. virescens F. and other species he placed in the second. No genotype was fixed for Oncopsis but Bythoscopus tiliae Germ was cited as the typical species of Pediopsis. One of these two new sub-genera was of course a synonym of Macropsis Lewis. In 1840 Westwood cited Cicadaflavicollis L. as the type of 0 ncopsis Burm. and Cicada virescens F. as the type of Macropsis Lewis. Pediopsis Burm. therefore becarne a synonym of Macresis Lewis. These type fixations were ignored by older writers but when they carne to be partially accepted by recent authors considerable confusion prevailed in the nomenclature of the I3ythoscopid genera. Care must therefore be taken in accepting the generic names assigned to new species by their authors without reference to the descriptions.
