Description

This dataset includes georeferenced label data of 114 type specimens (holotypes, paratypes, lectotypes or syntypes) belonging to 50 genera of the family Issidae Spinola, 1839 (Hemiptera). Additionally, it includes images of labels, dorsal and lateral habitus views, and in some cases, male genitalia structures or hind wings.

The listed taxa were described by many authors, including Becker (1865), Melichar (1902), Kusnezov (1926, 1927, 1929, 1930), Logvinenko (1974), Emeljanov (1964, 1978), Anufriev (2004), Lindberg (1954), Linnavuori (1970), Gnezdilov (2003, 2004, 2017, 2020), Gnezdilov & Drosopoulos (2005), Gnezdilov & Wilson (2005, 2008), Gnezdilov & O’Brien (2008), Gnezdilov & Bartlett (2018, 2020), and others.

The species housed in the collection are primarily from the Palaearctic region (mainly Mediterranean, Middle East, Middle Asia, Caucasus), Oriental region (mainly Southeastern Asia), and Neotropical region (South and Central America). The majority of taxa (85 species) belong to the subfamily Hysteropterinae Melichar, 1906, with the genera Mycterodus Spinola, 1839, Celyphoma Emeljanov, 1971, and Tshurtshurnella Kusnezov, 1927 being the most represented, with 19, 17, and eight species respectively. Other genera are represented by 1–4 species each. The subfamily Issinae Spinola, 1839 is represented by 29 species accumulated in the tribes Issini Spinola, 1839 (4), Thioniini Melichar, 1906 (10), Sarimini Wang, Zhang et Bourgoin, 2016 (6), Kodaianellini Wang, Zhang et Bourgoin, 2016 (1), Parahiraciini Cheng et Yang, 1991 (6), Hemisphaeriini Melichar, 1906 (1), and Eupilisini Gnezdilov, 2020 (1).

The Issidae collection is a part of general world collection of Auchenorrhyncha deposited in the Hemiptera Department of the Laboratory of Insect Systematics of the Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Saint Petersburg, Russia). It is stored in 36 standard wooden drawers with glass lids across five wooden cabinets. The types and other identified specimens are kept together in the drawers following taxonomic order sensu Gnezdilov et al. (2014, 2022). The Issidae collection has been maintained in its present state, including mounting and identification of the materials, by A.F. Emeljanov, since 1959, and V.M. Gnezdilov, since 2000.

Digitizing of the Issidae type specimens collection of the Zoological Institute RAS was financially supported by the grant of Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation (N 075-15-2021-1069).
