Title: Heteropteran Systematics Lab at the UCR
Creator: Weirauch, Christiane
Publisher: University of California / Department of Entomology
Abstract: Heteroptera, or True Bugs, comprise nearly 40,000 species in 86 families and therefore built one of the largest groups of hemimetabolous insects. They show a high degree morphological and biological diversity, but attract only a minor interest by a few scientist. True Bugs inhabit a wide range of habitats, and as the only insects also the open sea. They present any desirable feeding habit. The research of this Laboratory focus on the Miridae (Plant Bug) and Reduviidae (Assassin Bugs). This Webpage give an insight into the recent research of both taxa.
