Pentatomoidea Species Collected in Various Traps

    I have only just begun to compile a list of pentatomoid specimens that have been collected in various kinds of traps (e.g. Japanese beetle traps, pitfall traps, pan traps, malaise traps, and/or Berlese funnel traps).  So, for awhile, this list will be very incomplete.  I will be adding new records as I run across them.
