8A. North America and Mexico

Map showing biogeographic regions. Origins, faunal exchanges and ancient dispersal routes across oceans are presented. Description of this image follows.

The North American fauna of cicadas has been augmented by tropical elements from both Central America and the Caribbean; but it also has endemic (native) genera such as Tibicen and Cryptotympana which have invaded eastern Asia and northern Eurasia.

Cicada species occurring in more than one region of the world are marked with an asterisk (*).
