Pentatomoidea Species Collected at Dung

or Dead Animals

    I have only just begun to compile a list of pentatomoid specimens that have been collected at dung or dead animals.  So, for awhile, this list will be very incomplete.  I will be adding new records as I run across them.

Pangaeus congruus
(Kumar et al., 1976, cow pat,)
