Abstract

Pentatomoidea fauna for Puerto Rico and its adjacent islands is documented as part of a revised account of Heteroptera on these islands. There are 71 species in six families of Pentatomoidea known from Puerto Rico: Cydnidae (11); Pentatomidae (48) including Asopinae (8), Pentatominae (37), Discocephalinae (1), and Edessinae (2); Tessaratomidae (1); Scutelleridae (8); Megarididae (1); and Corimelaenidae (2). Of this total, seven represent new state records for Puerto Rico. Taxonomic accounts include synonymies, known distribution, lists of hosts, and a listing of specimens examined. Regional taxonomical keys are provided for the identification of taxa included. Color plates for most species are also included.
