Was the synonymy verified?

de Andrade, 1997, combined "S. bisonia" and "S. alta" as that last one, in addition, he did the same with "C. alta" in 2008. The original notes are available at:

Also, BugGuide provides alternative sources as:
Richness of the Nearctic Treehopper Fauna (Hemiptera: Aetalionidae and Membracidae) (Available at "https://www.mapress.com/zootaxa/2012/f/zt03423p026.pdf")

In Colombia, these three species are treated as "S. alta" by Gonzales, 2014 on "Sinopsis de Membracidae (Hemiptera: Membracoidea) de Colombia, relacionados con ecosistemas agrícolas" (Available at "http://www.bdigital.unal.edu.co/42935/1/07790802.2014.pdf")

@sesernam Please provide a reasonable answer for this.

Hello @wongun, of course,
"DIETRICH et al. (1999) refuted the new combination of Ceresa alta Walker as Stictocephala alta (Walker) and its synonymy with Stictocephala bisonia Kopp & Yonke, 1977, proposed by ANDRADE (1997)"
But, on 2008, Andrade revised this issue again, his conclussions are clear: Although there still are doubts about the synonymy of this groups, "the placement of C. alta in Stictocephala is at least correct", additionally, he found that the characteristics of these are consistent with S. bisonia; even so, he states that this topic remains unsolved but independent of it, in the case of iNaturalist and specifically insects, the taxonomic frame used as name provider continues being BugGuide (with all its faults) so, following this line is cautious try to maintain the agreement with this platform.

@sesernam Thank you for the answer. But I'd like to emphasize that the taxon changes in iNat should be carefully performed, especially in disputing issues.

@sesernam It might be time to revisit this merge... S. bisonia is a valid taxon on BugGuide.

Yes, S. alta and S. bisonia are currently treated as two separate species. This can also be seen in published form in the 2012 paper from Deitz and Wallace titled: Richness of the Nearctic Treehopper Fauna (Hemiptera: Aetalionidae and Membracidae). Bugguide follows the same taxonomy that this paper follows. Until there is an updated revision of the genus that synonymizes these species, they are indeed separate.
