Abstract

We present a review of Scutelleridae from Argentina, based on literature and collection data. A total of 24 species distributed in 13 genera is recorded, one genus belonging to Scutellerinae and the remaining to Pachycorinae. A synthesis of systematics, distribution and biology of this group is presented, as well as a key to subfamilies and genera and a list of host plants of the Argentinean species. The study of more specimens deposited in collections and the identification of undetermined material may raise the total of recorded species. Additionally, a greater sampling effort in southern provinces and high altitude regions may enhance knowledge of the biogeography and diversity of this group in Argentina.

Note: Journal of the New York Entomological Society - Vol. 103, No. 4 was published on October 1995. I don't know why to the end of article write: "Received 12 September 1996, accepted 29 December 1996". A misprint?!

Pentatomidae - 53 recorded spp.
Cydnidae - 13 recorded spp.
Thyreocoridae [=Corimelaenidae] - 9 spp.
Scutellaridae - 6 spp.

plus 1 pentatomidae, 1 cydnid, and 1 thyreocorid probably occur in Oklahoma but have not been recorded yet.
