GRAZIA, Jocélia; CAMPOS, Luiz A.  and  BECKER, Miriam. Revision of Cataulax Spinola, with Architas Distant as a new synonymy (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae: Discocephalini). An. Soc. Entomol. Bras. [online]. 2000, vol.29, n.3, pp.475-488. ISSN 0301-8059.

Five species are here recognized for the genus Cataulax Spinola, 1837: Cataulax eximius (Stål, 1860), Cataulax froeschneri, n. sp., Cataulax pudens (Distant 1889), Cataulax radians, n. sp. and Cataulax subtiliterconspersus, n. sp. Cataulax pudens is transferred from Architas Distant, 1889, here considered a junior synonym of Cataulax. Cataulax annulicornis Walker, 1868, Cataulax punctipes Walker, 1868 and Cataulax subvittatus Walker, 1868 are considered incertae sedis.

Keywords : Insecta; Discocephalinae; new species; taxonomy.
