Contributions to the taxonomy of Vilga Stål (Hemiptera, Coreidae, Pseudophloeinae) with the description of a new species from southern Brazil

WANESSA DA SILVA COSTA, ALINE BARCELLOS

Abstract


A new species belonging to the subgenus Laevivilga is described, as well as the female of Vilga (L.) sanctipauli and male of V. (L.) brasiliensis that were unknown until now. We complement original descriptions, update the distribution records and include the new species in the Dolling’s identification key to species of Vilga.
