  • Title
    First record of the predatory stinkbug Eocanthecona concinna (Walker, 1867) (Pentatomidae: Asopinae) from India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The genus Eocanthecona is distributed in oriental, Ethiopian and Australasian regions. This genus is represented by 24 species from the world of which only five species are reported from India. The bug Eocanthecona concinna was first reported from Hong Kong, China in 1867. Later again reported from different regions of China and Taiwan in 1910, 1934, 1961 and 2013. The review of literature indicates no record of E. concinna in India. Hence, the report of this stinkbug from Kolhapur becomes first report for India and the geographic range of the species in China and Taiwan is extended towards India.

    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The present paper reports three species of soil nematodes of the suborder Cephalobina collected from Ladakh region of the Jammu & Kashmir State, India. Two species, Cervidellus vexilliger (de Man, 1880) Thorne, 1937 and Chiloplacus demani (Thorne, 1925) Thorne, 1937 are reported for the first time from India, while, Acrobeloides nanus (de Man, 1880) Anderson 1968 is a first record from Ladakh. The species dealt with here have been adequately described and photomicrographed, with additional notes provided on variations encountered in measurements. The occurrence of these species from trans-Himalayan zone conforms with the zoogeographical pattern of distribution of the invertebrate fauna of the zone which harbours both Palaearctic and Oriental elements.
