Purana Cheeveedu UPSC NOTE

Purana cheeveedu

  • A ‘foreign’ cicada that is commonly found in several parts of South India.

  • It has assumed an Indian identity.

  • The insect species that has now been named Purana cheeveedu (after its Malayalam name Cheeveedu).

  • It is used to be mistaken for Purana tigrina, a species that was first described in Malaysia in 1850.

  • In view of the differences in their morphological characteristics, the Association for Advancement in Entomology has corrected the long-standing error in taxonomic identification and has excluded the Malaysian species from the South Indian cicada fauna.

  • Once a common sight in homesteads, their gradual disappearance could be an indicator of the deteriorating quality of soil and vegetation.
