Abstract

A new species of Amnestus Dallas, A. ficus is described. Its life cycle, and immature stages are also included and illustrated. The association of Cydnidae with the fruits of various species of Ficus is reported for first time. The study is based mainly on two-year sampling in a small patch of medium rain forest on the coast of Veracruz, combined with records from Chiapas, Guerrero, and San Luis Potosi, Mexico.
