Polhemus, D.A. (1994) An annotated checklist of the plant bugs of Colorado (Heteroptera: Miridae). Pan-Pacific Entomologist 70(2): 122-147.
Based on literature records and recent collections, 513 species of Miridae, or plant bugs, are recorded in a checklist for Colorado. If allowances are made for misidentifications and unconfirmed records this total drops to 470 species, which is still the largest number of mirid species reported from any state in the U.S.A. Of these species, 7 are introductions, and 22 are Holarctic species indigenous to North America. Annotations are provided in the checklist giving information on counties of occurrence, host plant records, Colorado type localities, and instances of Holarctic or introduced species. Cases where the listing of a species in the state may be potentially erroneous due to misidentification or taxonomic uncertainty are noted.
