Laura Torres-Miller

Abstract


New West Virginia state records for 13 species of Tingidae are reported. Collection localities and hosts, when known, are also recorded. Little work has been done in the past on the Tingidae occurring in West Virgina. Examination of collections at the West Virginia Department of Agriculture, Charleston (WVDA), West Virgina University, Morgantown (WVUC), and Marshall University, Huntington (MUHC), plus recent collecting efforts, have resulted in the discovery of 13 species not recorded for West Virginia by Drake & Ruhoff (1965) or Henry & Froeschner (1988). In the following list, collecting localities, specimen repositories, hosts when known, and common name, if any, are recorded.
