The Auchenorrhyncha fauna of the Maggelhansluch – tyrphobiotic and tyrphophilous insects as indicators for habitat evaluation of a hollow peat bog in Brandenburg (Germany). – In 2001 and 2002 the Auchenorrhyncha fauna of an intermediate bog called ‚Maggelhansluch‘ (Brandenburg, Germany) was surveyed as part of a broader project monitoring the tyrphophilic and tyrphobiotic species of several invertebrate groups. Although a motorway cuts through the site since the 1930‘s, still a total of 56 Auchenorrhyncha species was found, including 9 peatland specialists. This considerable high number of specialists indicates a particular importance of the surveyed bog for conservation. Noteworthy, threatened, or stenotopic species included the rare and little known delphacid planthoppers Kelisia confusa and Criomorphus moestus.
