Abstract:   (2176 Views)
A three-year survey of species in the Superfamily Pentatomoidea was conducted during March and November of 2018 through 2020 in Tartous Province, Syria. The identified specimens belonging to four families; i.e. Pentatomidae (21 species), Scutelleridae (2 species), Dinidoridae and Cydnidae each with one species. This is the first faunistic study on the Pentatomoidea in the coastal area of Syria, Tartous. The results represented the first records of Tritomegas sexmaculatus (Rambur, 1839) and its host plants in Tartous, here considered as a newly recorded species for fauna of Syria.
