ABSTRACT. The variability of morphological and bioacoustic traits in four species of Aconurella occurring in European Russia, Kazakhstan, Central Asia, and Siberia was studied, traits suitable for species diagnostics in this genus were revealed. New data on the distribution of three species are provided. The synonymy A. prolixa (Lethierry, 1885) = A. aethiopica (Cogan, 1916), syn.n. and A. sibirica (Lethierry, 1888) = A. alticola Vilbaste, 1980, syn.n. is established.
KEY WORDS: leafhoppers, morphology, variability, vibrational signals, distribution, synonymy, European Russia, Kazakhstan, Central Asia, Siberia.
