Abstract

The black bug species Corimelaena harti (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Thyreocoridae) was described over 100 years ago, yet practically no ecological information is known about the species. We newly report Galium concinnum (shining bedstraw) as a confirmed host plant and “mountain mint” as a second possible host plant. Further, we report this black bug species as a new state record for Ohio.
