Megapomponia is a genus of cicadas from Southeast Asia containing the world's largest cicadas species.[1][2] It was erected by Boulard to accommodate the world's largest cicada species, Megapomponia imperatoria, the type species of Megapomponia.[1] Boulard included seven species in Megapomponia. Lee and Sanborn, however, re-transferred two species to Pomponia, Pomponia decem and Pomponia rajah.[2]
