The diverse assemblage of invertebrates associated with Pinus (pine) snags in Florida and the Coastal Plain of Georgia include the large, widely distributed assassin bug, Microtomus purcis, and the scorpion Centruroides hentzi which is restricted to this region. We describe two instances of predation by M. purcis on C. hentzi in Georgia. These represent the first documented observations of predation on a scorpion species by an assassin bug.
