Ricania japonica, copyright Vakhtang Janjghava.

Belongs within: Euhemiptera.
Contains: Fulgoridae, Issidae, Tropiduchidae, Dictyopharidae, Delphacidae, Achilidae, Flatidae, Derbidae, Cixiidae.

The Fulgoromorpha are plant-sucking bugs including the modern Fulgoroidea and their possible predecessors, the Permian Coleoscytidae. Fulgoroids can be distinguished from other living hemipterans by their antennae being located ventrally to the eyes and having an enlarged, more or less bulbous pedicel with wart-like sensilla. Families of fulgoroids include the Meenoplidae, characterised by have one or both of the anal veins of the forewing granulate. The Dictyopharidae are medium-sized fulgoroids with rather narrow wings that commonly have the head strongly prolonged anteriorly (Carver et al. 1991).

Synapomorphies (from Shcherbakov & Popov 2002): Mesonotum with longitudinal carinae; tegula concealing forewing base; basicubital triangle short in forewing; coxae separated mesally.
