Dicromantispa Hoffman, 2002

Dicromantispa comprises ten species ( Hoffman, 2002; Machado & Rafael, 2010) distributed from southern Canada to Argentina, including the Bahamas, Cuba and Puerto Rico ( Hoffman, 2002). In this paper we registered three species D. debilis , D. gracilis , and D. moulti .

Concerning the biology of this group, the first larval instar of D. interrupta (Say) has been founded in association with 13 species of spiders in five different families namely Salticidae , Ctenidae , Pisauridae , Lycosidae and Clubionidae ( Hoffman & Brushwein 1990) . Redborg & MacLeod (1985) reported D. sayi (Banks) a facultative boarder-penetrator associated with 31 species in 21 genera of spiders. Rice (1986) and Rice & Peck (1991) listed 13 species belonging to six spider families ( Araneidae , Gnaphosidae , Mimetidae , Salticidae , Scytodidae and Tetragnathidae ) as hosts of this species.
