oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Saxicoris, a new genus of Psamminae from South Africa (Hemiptera: Lygaeidae)

Volume 33, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



Slater & Sweet (1965) raised the tribe Psammini Bergroth to subfamily status and discussed the relationships to other lygaeoid groups. The subfamily has until now been represented by two genera, Psammium Breddin from South Africa and Sympeplus Bergroth from India. Through the kindness of Dr A. J. Hesse of the South African Museum, Cape Town, we have been able to examine a very distinctive new genus from South Africa.
