Abstract--Nisoscolopocerus schuhi, new species, assigned to the family Coreidae (Coreini), is described from Mexico as the second member of the genus.
For the family Coreidae, adult Leptoglossus zonatus females strongly attracted the milichiid flies, and the first flies always arrived two seconds after they were crushed, but the flies arrived after 34 seconds when a male bug was crushed.
