The sharpshooter genus Chlorogonalia occurs from southern Brazil northward to southern Mexico. Originally described in 1977, it circumscribed five species, three of which were new. No host plants were known. One species from Colombia, which proved to be undescribed, has been implicated as a vector of the "coffee crespera" disease, along with two other sharpshooters: Juliaca scalarum Young and an undescribed species of Graphocephala. Two other new species of Chlorogonalia have also been discovered.
