Dorisiana metcalfi Sanborn & Heath, 2014  

Cicada viridis Olivier 1790: 754   . ( Suriname)

Dorisiana metcalfi Sanborn & Heath 2014   nom. nov. pro Cicada viridis Olivier, 1790   nec Cicada viridis Linnaeus, 1758: 60   .

REMARKS.— Metcalf (1952) synonymized this species with Dorisiana semilata ( Walker, 1850)   . However, the taxon represented by Cicada viridis Olivier, 1790   is distinct from D. semilata   in genitalia and other morphological characteristics so that Sanborn & Heath (2014) provided Dorisiana metcalfi   nom. nov. as a replacement name for the taxon represented by Cicada viridis Olivier, 1790   which was preoccupied. Specimens from Suriname are required to be able to determine if D. metcalfi   and D. semilata   are in fact synonyms.

Although D. metcalfi   has been suggested to be misidentified examples of G. bogotana ( Distant, 1892a) ( Sanborn 2018c)   , both Jacobi (1907a) and Goding (1925) identified specimens of both species in their works. I also was able to examine specimens of both species from Ecuador and both species are considered to be present in Ecuador. Dorisiana metcalfi   has a green head and thorax lightly marked with piceous and a tawny abdomen. It can be distinguished from the similar G. bogotana   by the anteriorly rounded timbal cover with a ventral margin parallel to the long body axis rather than the triangular timbal cover found in D. metcalfi   quickly distinguish the species from one another as well as the differing generic characteristics (Sanborn 1916a).

DISTRIBUTION.—The species has been reported from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela ( Metcalf 1963a; Dorval et al. 2011; Sanborn 2011b; 2013; 2019b; 2020b; Santos- Cividanes et al. 2013; Sanborn & Heath 2014; Dias et al. 2017). Previous records to Panama are in error ( Sanborn 2018c). Goding (1925) reported the species from Macas, Morona Santiago province and Baños, Tungurahua province and Jacobi (1907a) from Archidona, Napo province and Canelos, Pastaza province.
