Abstract

Corythucha tuthilli Drake, a lace bug described more than 65 years ago, has remained known only from its type locality (Creede, Mineral County, Colorado) in the southern Rocky Mountains. No host-plant information has been available. It is newly recorded from Arizona (Luna Lake, Apache County) and from an additional site in Mineral County, Colorado (SW of South Fork). At both sites, nymphs and adults were common on woolly cinquefoil (Potentilla hippiana Lehm.; Rosaceae). A diagnosis and photographs of the adult habitus are included to facilitate recognition of this obscure tingid in the fauna of western North America.
