Knight, H.H. 1926. Descriptions of seven new Paracalocoris with keys to the Nearctic species and varieties (Hemiptera, Miridae). Annals of the Entomological Society of America, 19(4): 367–377.

Abstract

In an earlier volume of the Annals (Ann. Ent. Soc. Am., IX, 1916, pp. 366–390), Mr. W. L. McAtee published a key to the species and varieties of Paracalocoris Distant known at that time. During the intervening years the writer has accumulated material which includes seven hitherto unrecognized species which are described in the present paper. In addition, Capsus externus H. S. has been recognized from Florida, found to be a Paracalocoris, and a key to the color varieties published (Ent. News, xxxvii, 1926, pp. 258-262). A new key is now included for the eighteen known Nearctic species with keys to the varieties of those species which present striking color forms.
