Pseudatomoscelis seriatus (Reuter, 1876) - (cotton fleahopper)

The bug attacks cotton in the southern U.S.A. The developing flower buds, called squares, are attacked, causing shedding of the squares, abnormal growth and yield reductions. In 1983, yield losses due to the fleahopper were estimates at 46,000 bales of cotton (~ 10,000 tons).
