T.J. Henry's comment: "The late I.M. Kerzhner was our world authority and in the relatively recent Palearctic catalog (1996) he again reduced these names to subgenera of under Nabis
. Personally, I was comfortable with keeping them as genera, but until further study, it is best to follow that publication and this one."

Dailey, P.J., R.C. Graves, and J.L. Herring. 1978. Survey of Hemiptera collected on common milkweed, Asclepias syriaca
, at one site in Ohio. Entomological News 89(7&8): 157-162.
ABSTRACT: Hemiptera frequenting 337 plants of common milkweed, Asclepias syriaca
were surveyed by daily collecting for a period of 90 consecutive days. Forty-six species are listed, some of which are probably new Ohio records. Five species were considered to be significantly abundant (more than 50 individuals collected): Lygaeus kalmii, Lygus lineolaris, Plagiogfiathus politus, Adelphocoris lineolatus
, and Cosmopepla bimaculata
. Only L. kalmii
(1,173 individuals collected) and 0ncopeltus fasciatus
, which was relatively scarce, are host specific.
