Temporal occurrence of Podisus maculiventris (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) in North Florida
Florida Entomologist 87 (4), 587-590
Abstract: In northern Florida, P. maculiventris emerge in March-April and begin overwintering in October-November. The data indicate that P. maculiventris has a bimodal phenology, with peak abundance in May and a second less prominent peak in June. Comparisons of trap collections in northern Florida and central New York suggest little deviation in adult seasonal activity of P. maculiventris between the northeastern and southeastern USA.
