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.
