Carineta postica Walker, 1858b  

Cicada postica Walker 1858b: 23   . ( Colombia)

REMARKS.—Another of the large species of Carineta   heavily marked with piceous and a spot of infuscation on the apex of the hind wing anal cell 2. It can be distinguished quickly from C. centralis   , C. fimbriata   , C. producta   and C. trivittata   by the spot of infuscation on the mediocubital crossvein in the hind wing of these species. The lack of linear infuscation in the fore wing apical cells distinguishes C. maculosa   and C. ventralis   from this species. Carineta tracta   can be distinguished by the monochromatic mesothorax with only the submedian sigillae outlined in piceous. Finally, both C. detoulgoueti   and C. porioni   can be distinguished by the lack of piceous spots on the pronotal ambient fissure at the posterior lateral fissure, the lack of piceous between the posterolateral lateral sigillae and posterolateral mesothorax, and the linear infuscation on the hind wing margin in these species.

DISTRIBUTION.—The species is known from Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panamá, and Peru ( Metcalf 1963c; Duffels & van der Laan 1985; Sanborn & Maes 2012; Maes et al. 2012; Sanborn 2013; 2014a; 2018c; 2020b). Goding (1925) reported the species from Balzapamba, Bolívar province. Berger (2001) reported a specimen from the Estacion Cientifica San Francisco, Zamora-Chinchipe Province. The range in Ecuador is expanded below to include Orellana   province.
