Abstract

Males of the reduviid species Sinea diadema (F.) and S. confusa Caudell have so far been undistinguishable. The present light microscopy study revealed subtle differences in the parameres and more clear-cut differences in the genital capsules of the males of these two species. In addition, the eggs of S. confusa were studied using scanning electron microscopy. A comparison with published light microscopic observations on the eggs of S. diadema showed that the eggs of the two species differ as well. New locality records are given for S. diadema (U.S.A.: IA, TX), S. confusa (U.S.A.: PR; Mexico: Nayarit), S. defecta Stål (Mexico: Veracruz, Oaxaca, Chiapas), S. spinipes Stål (U.S.A.: CT, IA; Mexico: Vera Cruz), S. rileyi Montandon (U.S.A.: CT, WA), and S. complexa (U.S.A.: KS).
