A New Species of Bromeliad Lygaeid from Jamaica

Florida Entomologist
Publication Date


A new species of Ozophora from Jamaica, West Indies is described and figured. The immature stages are also described. This species appears to be restricted to mature seed heads of bromeliads in the genus Hohenbergia. This restricted habitat is unusual since most species in the Rhyparochrominae are litter insects that feed upon fallen seeds on the ground.
