  Abstract:  The studied area is located in the north-eastern part of the Apuseni Mountains. For faunistical and ecological studies we have chosen five types of ecosystems: spruce and pine forests, meadow, pasture and oligotrophic swampland. Our studies revealed that the most abundant cicada populations occurred in meadows and subalpine pastures. A small number of cicada species live in pine forest and oligotrophic swampland. All these ecosystems are dominated by two species: Verdanus abdominalis and Diplocolenus bohemani which form here abundant communities. The preliminary studies allow us to conclude that in this area the cicada fauna is very scarce.
