The two spittlebug families most commonly encountered in the Neotropics are the often-colorful Cercopids, and the much smaller but bulky Clastopterids. Less common are members of the family Aphoridae, a family that is most diverse in the Holarctic. As a rule Aphrophorine Spittlebugs are drab, sometimes with a "furry" appearance, and are a little smaller than Cercopids. Philaronia pauca was described from Mexico in 1979.
