Santana Fauna

The Homopteran group includes such insects as plant- and leaf-hoppers and aphids, etc.

This specimen is one of many found extremely well preserved within what was previously termed the 'Crato Member' of the Santana Formation. This is now, in fact, considered as a Formation in its own right (Martill 1993).

A comprehensive record of the Santana insects is to be found in Grimaldi (1990).
