Abstract: MOWD includes almost all valid names of Membracoidea worldwide. Synonyms and unpublished combinations will be added later. MOWD also includes country distributions of all species. In the original species description citations (1758-1955), letter designations refer to the Catalogue of the Homoptera, available online (www.lib.ncsu.edu/specialcollections/digital/metcalf/index.html). MOWD was developed and is maintained by Dr. Stuart McKamey, with some financial assistance from Dr. Christopher Dietrich (Illinois Natural History Survey).
