Notes on Neotropical Proconiini (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae: Cicadellinae), IV: lectotype designations of Aulacizes Amyot & Audinet-Serville species described by Germar and revalidation of A. erythrocephala (Germar, 1821)

Lectotypes are designated for the sharpshooter species Aulacizes erythrocephala (Germar, 1821) and A. quadripunctata (Germar, 1821) based on recently located specimens from the Germar collection. The former species is reinstated from synonymy of the latter one and is redescribed and illustrated based on specimens from Southeastern Brazil. The male and female genitalia are described for the fi rst time. The two species are similar morphologically, but they can be easily distinguished from each other, as well as from the other species of the genus, by their color patterns
