oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - A new species of Thaumastellidae (Hemiptera: Pentatomoidea) from southern Africa



A second species, Thaumastella namaquensis, is added to the genus and family. Its morphology is compared briefly with that of T. aradoides Horvath, and the distribution and biology are discussed. The distribution of the genus represents a Mediterranean-southern African xeric one, and several other insect examples of such a distribution are given.
