Catalog of the Heteroptera, or True Bugs of Canada and the Continental United States
By Thomas J. Henry, Richard C. Froeschner
Brill Academic Publishers, 1988
ISBN: 0-916846-44-X
Cite: 12328
A thick book cataloging all 3834 North American species from 45 families. Things have probably changed some since 1988, but at almost 1000 pages there's lots of good info here. Mostly the species are just listed, but there are some illustrations and sometimes distribution info.

I wouldn't recommend paying the going used rate of over $100 for this, but I got lucky on a new copy off eBay for a good bit less than that.

If someone wants me to look something up for them in my copy, I'd be happy to do that. Just send me an email and be patient, it may take me a few days to get around to it. Unfortunately, I lost this book in a house fire, so I no longer have it.

Catalog of the Heteroptera
The distribution, by state, is given for every species. Also, synonyms (and where they were published) for each species are listed under the current name. Dorsal views are represented for 161 species by pen and ink drawings. The bibliography continues for 131 pages, the index for 83 pages. They treat 3834 species in 677 genera in 45 families.
