SAIVA BULLATA

Planthopper

Saiva is a genus of Asian lanternbugs, family Fulgoridae. They are colourful insects, marked boldly in red, blue, white and black, with a prominent slender stalk like structure arising on the head that points upwards or forward. The known distribution is from India, through Indo-China to Borneo.

The Fulgorinae are a sub-family of insects in the Auchenorrhyncha which include the spectacular lantern-bugs and allied insects.

The planthoppers are a cosmopolitan group of insects placed in the infraorder Fulgoromorpha which includes approximately 9,000 described species in 20 families. The vast majority of planthoppers feed on the phloem tissues of woody or herbaceous plants; however, some planthoppers feed on fungi, mosses, horsetails, or ferns. Many planthoppers are univoltine and overwinter in the temperate zones in the egg stage; others are multivoltine where the number of generations per year depends on temperature and, perhaps, photoperiod, and many overwinter as nymphs or adults.
