Paranota explanate and with basal fold; costal margin of hemelytra
upturned; pronotal hood elongate, curved downward over head, with crest, and extending beyond antennal insertion Corythaica Stal
DIAGNOSIS: Easily recognized by the ovoid body, smooth and rounded head, usually widely hyaline hemelytra
with the partly pigmented apices of the corium and cuneus (Fig.
Full white dots (??) represent eggs laid on the exposed dorsal and ventral body sides; full black dots (*) represent eggs laid under the wings in 2 distinct portions of the forewings (hemelytra
) that cover the abdomen, i.e., the coriaceous anterior portion (Cp) and the membranous posterior portion (Mp).
Head pronotum, scutellum, is dull ochraceous, thickly and densely punctured with dark brown tinge; eyes dark brown with outer border dull ochraceous; ocelli pale ochraceous; antennae brown; pronotum and scutellum streaked with dark and light stripes; apex of scutellum light brown, with few dark brown puncture; each segment of abdomen dark brown with middle portion light brown; membrane of hemelytra
bright brown with dark veins; labium ochraceous except a little basal portion of 3rd and entire 4th segment are brown; legs ochraceous brown with dark patches.
Dorsally, the head, pronotum, scutellum, and hemelytra
were mottled shades of brown and gray.
2'.--Body less elongate and more robust; fore legs not raptorial; fore coxae not elongate; hemelytra
normally divided into corium and membrane ...
A unique, unreported feature present in certain mainland African and Middle Eastern Laccocorinae is a transverse fracture of the hemelytra
extending from near the distal end of the embolium through the apex of the claval commissure (Figs 15, 17, 19).
Pronotum trapezoid, 2.9 times as broad as long, lateral margins, straight, flattened and distinctly raisedwith fifteen long, acute, upwardly projecting spines ofunequal length; costal margin of hemelytra
yellow, callus with three short stout yellowish teeth, connexiva black, with exterior margin along whole length yellow, moderately raised, armed with 5-6 teeth on each connexivum M.
: Uniformly pale green, translucent; wing membrane brownish fumate, veins slightly darker; hemelytra
bearing scattered, semi-erect, simple golden setae only.
brasiliensis, although from its description (Drake 1922) it differs from the Colombian specimen in that the hemelytra
is widened near the apex (not widened in the Colombian specimen), and that the portion connecting the inflated part of the middle carina bears three areoles (no areoles in the Colombian specimen).
quadrator is distinguished by a lack of pigment on the hemelytra
(Esquivel et al.
The body including antennal segments except 3rd, 4th and distal most part of fifth, labium excluding 4th segment, entire pronotum, scutellum except basal portion, corium and clavus, connexiva excluding basal and distal portion of each connexivum adjacent to their joints, venter of abdomen, legs excluding distal portion of tibiae and claws, yellowish ochraceous, thickly punctate with brown, eyes and membrane of hemelytra
light brown; ocelli pale ochraceous, basal portion of scutellum and veins of membrane of hemelytra
black; 3rd antennal segment with brownish tinge, 4th fully and distal most part of 5th antennal segments, basal portion of each connexivum adjacent to their joints, distal portion of tibiae and tarsi and claws are brownish black with reddish tinge.
