status

 

Thyanta perditor   .

Like the previous species, this pentatomid was also found in small numbers on privet. No nymphs and eggs were observed on this plant. This pentatomid inhabits much of northern South America (CALLAN, 1948), but it seems to be more typical of West Indies and Mexico ( VAN DUZEE, 1904). WALDBAUER (1977) reported T. perditor   as an important pest of soybean in Colombia. In Brazil, it also feeds on soybean, and on wheat, Bidens pilosa L.   being its preferred wild host ( PANIZZI & HERZOG, 1984).

Adults greenish with a red band on pronotum. Females 12.0 mm (n = 5) long, and males 11.0 mm (n = 5). Early instars oval and lightbrown to black. Later instars black with white or yellowish spots on abdomen ( GRAZIA et al., 1982).
