          Abstract

          A current checklist of the Paraguayan cicada fauna is provided. The first records of Fidicina torresi Boulard and Martinelli, 1996, Proarna dactyliophora Berg, 1879, Proarna praegracilis Berg, 1881, Dorisiana drewseni (Stål, 1854), Ariasa nigrovittata Distant, 1905, and Chonosia crassipennis (Walker, 1858) for Paraguay are given. The new records increase the known cicada diversity 37.5% bringing the total number of cicada species reported in Paraguay to 22 species in 12 genera representing five tribes and three subfamilies of the family Cicadidae. There are currently no known endemic species.
