DELLAPE, Pablo Matías  and  MONTEMAYOR, Sara Itzel. Description of a new species of Ischnodemus from Peru, and the male and immature stages of I. subflavus (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Lygaeoidea: Blissidae). Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2009, vol.80, n.3, pp.687-691. ISSN 2007-8706.

A new species, Ischnodemus brusai, from Ucayali, Peru is described and illustrated, including characters of the male genitalia. Adult males and females, and immature specimens of I. subflavus Slater and Wilcox 1969 were collected on Sporobolus rigens (Trinius) Desvaux (Poaceae) in the province of Chubut, Argentina. This is the first record of the male for this species. Descriptions and illustrations of a male individual, as well as male and female genitalia and immature stages II to V are provided. Affinities with other Neotropical species of Ischnodemus are discussed.

Keywords : Ischnodemus brusai; new species; Ischnodemus subflavus; immature stages; Peru; Argentina.
