Limnocoris pygmaeus La Rivers  

( Fig. 5 View FIGURE 5 )

Limnocoris pygmaeus La Rivers, 1956   , 92–94 (original description).

Limnocoris solenoides: Rodrigues & Sites, 2019: 483   (synonymy).

Published records. México: Guerrero, Jalisco, Nayarit, Oaxaca, Sinaloa, Sonora ( La Rivers 1956, Reynoso-Velasco & Sites 2019b, Rodrigues & Sites 2019).

New state record. México: Michoacán.

Distribution. This species is distributed exclusively in Mexico. Similar to L. inornatus   , the species exhibits a neotropical distribution along the western coast ( Fig. 5 View FIGURE 5 ), in the Pacific Lowlands biogeographic province (Guerrero, Jalisco, Michoacán, Nayarit, Oaxaca, Sinaloa). The northernmost record (Sonora) is in the southern part of the Sonoran province. Records from central and western Oaxaca, as well as those from northwestern Jalisco are in the Sierra Madre del Sur province, in the Tierras Altas Oaxaqueñas and Jalisciense districts, respectively. The single record in the central part of Michoacán is in the Balsas Basin biogeographic province, which suggests the species could at least inhabit the western (lower) part of this basin. Although L. pygmaeus   has not been recorded from Colima, its presence in this state is expected.
