Life strategies of Auchenorrhyncha species on river floodplains in the northern Alps, with description of a new species: Macropsis remanei sp. n. (Hemiptera)
Nickel H. 1999. Reichenbachia 33: 157-169.
Data are presented on faunistics, phenology. habitats and food plants of sorne little known Auchenorrhyncha species living in scattered vegetation on frequently tlooded river banks in the Bavarian and Tyrolian Alps. A considerable proportion of these species is univoltine. monophagous and stenotopic with small distribution ranges, although commonly accepted concepts of life strategies in disturbed and temporary habitats predict the opposite. Furthermore. a new species is describcd, Macropsis remanei sp. n., living on Olive Willow iSalix eleagnos ; along brooks and rivers in the Bavarian Alps.
