Abstract

Aspects of the immigration of an Oriental group of cicadas eastwards of Wallace's Line into the Papuan and Melanesian areas are analyzed in a taxonomic and biogeographic study of the subtribe Cosmopsaltriaria. Comparison of a combined taxon-area cladogram of the Cosmopsaltriaria with the palaeogeography of the area involved reveals that the distribution patterns found can be explained by dichotomic dispersal of ancestral species along the Tertiary island arcs of Sulawesi and the inner and outer Melanesian Arcs.
