oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Anneckecoris, a new genus of Stygnocorini from the Cape, with notes on the biology and distribution of the South African fauna (Hemiptera: Lygaeidae)
A new genus and species of Lygaeidae, Anneckecoris brunneus, are descriptionbed from the southwest Cape and assigned to the tribe Stygnocorini. Host plant, habitat information and/or nymphal descriptionptions are given for paracnemodus capensis Slater, Sweetocoris parafenestratus O'Rourke, S. slateri O'Rourke, S. minutus (Scudder) and Lasiosomus lasiosomoides (Bergevin). The eggs of S. minulus and S. drakensbergensis O'Rourke are descriptionbed. The distributions of paracnemodus, Lasiosomus and Sweetocoris are discussed, and the possible paraphyly of the Stygnocorini is suggested. Figures are included of the macropterous and coleopteroid forms, the abdomen and the spermatheca of Anneckecoris brunneus.
