In the present paper on Australian Leaf-Hoppers, the following families are dealt with: Cicadellidae, Nirvaniidae, Euacanthidae,
and the Euscelidae, in part. In addition, notes are given on the Paropiidae, Pythamidae, Jassidae, and Eupterygidae.
The purpose of this and of preceding papers has been to collect together references scattered in numerous periodicals extending over a century, to revise the classification where necessary, to enable students to obtain some idea of the jassoid fauna of the continent,
and, primarily, to render it possible for entomologists other than specialists in the group, to place in their correct families and genera the commoner representatives of this super-family which are taken in general collecting.
