廣翅蠟蟬屬 (Genus Ricania) > 斑點廣翅蠟蟬 Ricania guttata (Walker, 1851)

斑点广翅蜡蝉 Ricania guttata (Walker) 隶属于半翅目 Hemiptera 蜡蝉总科 Fulgoroidea,是近年来
发生在广东、香港等地的红树林湿地及周边公园绿地、严重危害红树林的重要害虫,主要危害海桑
Sonneratia caseolaris、白骨壤 Avicennia marina、木榄 Bruguiera gymnorrhiza、秋茄 Kandelia obovata等。
斑点广翅蜡蝉体长 6.0 ~7.2 mm,翅展 16.5 ~18.0 mm。体黑色,前翅烟褐色,雄性个体颜色较深。
雌成虫前翅具 3 个透明斑,雄虫前翅外缘无长形透明斑。斑点广翅蜡蝉的模式产地为香港,最初定
名为 Flatoides guttatus Walker, 1851,后经 Stål 修订为 Ricania guttata (Walker), 1862。
通过深圳和香港害虫现场发生情况考察并对采自深圳和香港红树林的标本鉴定,并经美国 Lois B.
O’Brien 教授核对和英国自然历史博物馆 Mick D. Webb 先生比对模式标本,确认学名为 Ricania
guttata (Walker)。该虫中文名称较多,包括“点滴广蜡蝉”、“红树蜡蝉”、“红树广翅蜡蝉”等,
根据其形态特征及学名含义,建议统一叫做“斑点广翅蜡蝉”。封面照片由张润志 2015 年 6 月 24
日拍摄于香港米埔红树林。
