DELLAPE, Gimena. Synopsis of theAcanthosomatidae (Heteroptera) from Argentina. Rev. Soc. Entomol. Argent. [online]. 2016, vol.75, n.1-2, pp.81-90. ISSN 0373-5680.

A synopsis of the Argentinean Acanthosomatidae, including a key to genera, new distributional data and host plant records, and complementary information is provided. The tribe Blaudusini is recorded for the first time from Argentina. Currently, the family Acanthosomatidae is represented in Argentina by two subfamilies, three tribes, 14 genera, and 20 species. Most of the species are found in the Andean Patagonia, associated with native trees and shrubs from southern South America, such as Nothofagus Blume and Luma A. Gray, and with several species of berries.

Keywords : Pentatomoidea; Blaudusini; Diversity; Patagonia.
