oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - A new species of Paracimex (Hemiptera: Cimicidae): the first avian bug from the Ethiopian Region
Paracimex africanus spec. nov. is descriptionbed from the nests of two species of swifts, Tachymarptis melba africanus (Temminck) and T. aequalorialis gelidus Brooke (Aves: A podidae) in the Transvaal and Rhodesia respectively. The new species is differentiated from the 12 Paracimex known from Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands, and comments are made on the supraspecific classification of its hosts.
