New record of leaf footed bugs of genus, Homoeocerus (Hemiptera: Coreidae) on Dalbergia sissoo from Jharkhand, India.


Two sap sucking bug species of genus Homoeocerus Burmeister viz. Homoeocerus angulatus Westwood and Homoeocerus macula Dallas (Hemiptera: Coreidae) were observed to cause notable damage to shisham seedlings, saplings and young plantation of Dalbergia sissoo in Jharkhand. The present finding of these two species associated with shisham (Dalbergia sissoo Roxb.) is the first record from Jharkhand, India.
