PONCIO, Sônia et al. First report of Stiretrus decastigmus in Brazil preying Microtheca ochroloma. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2010, vol.40, n.5, pp.1203-1205.  Epub May 14, 2010. ISSN 0103-8478.

Due to the importance of Microtheca ochroloma (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) as an insect-pest of Brassicaceae and to the lack of data regarding its natural enemies, the present research aims to report the first occurrence of Stiretrus decastigmus (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) preying M. ochroloma in Brassica chinensis L., at Santa Maria, Rio Grande do Sul state, Brazil (latitude: 29°43'28"S, longitude: 53°43'19"O, height: 95m). The collecting methodology and morphologic characteristics of the insects found were also described.

Keywords : Pentatomidae; predators; Chrysomelidae.
