Richman DB, Whitcomb WH. 1978. Comparative life cycles of four species of predatory stink bugs. Florida Entomologist 61(3): 113-119.

Abstract

Four species of asopine stink bugs, Alcaeorrhynchus grandis (Dallas), Euthyrhynchus floridanus (L.), Podisus maculiventris (Say), and Stiretrus anchorago (Fab.), were reared in the laboratory under identical conditions. Two groups of each species were maintained; one under simulated Florida field conditions at a variable temperature ranging from 18-30dC, averaging approximately 26dC, and the second at a constant temperature of 27dC.

Abstract

Stiretrus anchorago (F.) was collected from S.C. soybean fields and reared at 3 constant temperatures. Larvae of [Mexican Bean Beetle] Epilachna varivestis Mulsant were used as prey for S. anchorago in life history studies.
Female adults lived an average of 46.0 29.6, and 12.6 days; males 38.2, 24.8, and 22.4 days at constant temperatures of 18.3, 26.7, and 32.2dC, respectively. Mean numbers of eggs per female were 12.6, 57.3, and 15.0 at 18.3, 26.7, and 32.2dC, respectively.

Review of the genus Perillus with description of a new species (Hemiptera, Pentatomidae).
By Knight, H.H.
Annals of the Entomological Society of America 45(2): 229–232., 1952
Knight, H.H. 1952. Review of the genus Perillus with description of a new species (Hemiptera, Pentatomidae). Annals of the Entomological Society of America 45(2): 229–232.

Abstract

The writer's interest in the genus Perillus dates back some 37 years when in August, 1913, near Batavia, N.Y., he first observed the red and black male of Perillus bioculatus Fab. mating with the white and black female form, clanda Say.
