This is one of a series of papers devoted to the homopterous
fauna of Cuba. Previous published papers include Metcalf and
Bruner 1925a on the Cercopidae, 1925b on the Membracidae,
1930a on the Tropiduchidae and Acanaloniidae, 1936a on the
Cicadellidae, 1944a on the Cercopidae and 1948a on the Flatidae.
The Gyponidae constitute a fairly large family of leaf hoppers
of relatively large size and are usually greenish or yellowish
green in color, frequently without conspicuous color markings.
The head is generally large, nearly as broad as the pronotum
with the crown usually broad and flat with a distinct pair of
ocelli. The pronotum is usually large with distinct anterior and
posterior margins and the lateral margins divided into anterior
and posterior regions by distinct humeral angles. The tegmina
are large, macropterous and usually coriaceous or translucent;
subcosta is unbranched and marginal, radius two-branched, me-
dius unbranched, cubitus one is branched near the apex setting
off a distinct cell beyond the apex of the clavus. In most genera
there are two rows of fairly regular transverse veins which
usually make a series of five apical cells including the radial
and cubital cells and a row of three subapical cells. In the genera
Rugosana De Long and Gyponana Ball the venation is more or
less reticulate, especially apically. The claval suture is distinct
and the claval veins are usually connected by a transverse vein
near the base.
The wings are usually large with radius and media two-
branched; cubitus one and two conspicuous. There are three
anals with anals one and two usually united for half their length
at the base. The legs are usually stout; hind tibiae quadrangu-
lar; with the outer anterior and posterior and the inner anterior
margins set with numerous stout spines, and the inner posterior

margin with numerous fine spines. The male genitalia seem to
be specifically distinct. The pygofer is saddle-shaped; the anal
segment rather large; the anal style small. The genital plates
are usually flat, more or less quadrangular. The genital styles
are usually elongate, narrow. The aedeagus is usually elongate
and most frequently has a pair of elongate basal and apical
The North American species of this family have recently
been reviewed by De Long (1942d) but he did not include any
species from the West Indies. However, it does not appear to
be necessary to offer any keys to or descriptions of the genera
at this time. We do, however, include notes and illustrations on
the common North and South American Xerophloea viridis which
is widely distributed in Cuba. This species was formally in-
cluded in the family Gyponidae but has been assigned by Evans
(1947a) to the family Ledridae.

This species is somewhat anomalous in any known genus.
In general characters it resembles most nearly Hamana DeLong
but the tegmina differ decidedly and the genitalia differ in all
details except the general structure of the genital styles. The
crown is typically shorter than in Prairiana Ball but the tegmina
and genitalia resemble the species of this genus more closely
than any other genus.
Head broad, not quite as broad as the greatest width of the pronotum.
Crown short and broad, more than twice as broad as the median length;
ocelli about equi-distance from anterior and posterior border, about as far
from each other as from the compound eyes; anterior margin slightly an-
gulate, not very foliaceous; posterior margin broadly incised. Face flat;
postclypeus narrow, distinctly indented dorsad; anteclypeus about twice as
long as its greatest width; maxillary plates narrow and elongate. Genae


broad, flat, distinctly rugulose. Pronotum broad, distinctly rugulose; an-
terior margin broadly curved; posterior margin broadly incised; anterior
lateral margins slightly longer than the posterior lateral margins, which
are nearly straight. Tegmina with normal venation, distinctly rugulose.
Scutellum large.
Male genitalia with the pygofer short and broad, distinctly produced
dorsad; genital plates elongate, narrow, distinctly incised basad, then nearly
parallel to the broadly rounded apices; genital styles broad at the base,
then graduate attenuate to a somewhat club-like apical portion; aedeagus
elongate, somewhat elbowed at the base with a pair of elongate apical pro-
cesses; basal processes broad, slightly hood-like. Female genitalia with
the last ventral segment more than twice as broad as long, its median
length not quite twice the length of the penultimate segment; posterior
margin broadly incised, lateral lobes distinctly produced and the median
area produced into a distinct triangular or rounded lobe.
General color light olive; green; crown and pronotum more or less
brownish green; with the tegmina heavily marked with broad dashes of
the same color; venter chiefly brownish green with the anterior and inter-
mediate tibiae and tarsi and the posterior tarsi tinged with bright red.

Most American writers have included the genus Xerophloea
in the Family Gyponidae but Medler (1943a), DeLong and Knull

Family Ledridae.
Xerophloea viridis Fabr.
Plate 4: Figs. 1A-E
This species is found from Massachusetts to Washington
south through Mexico and the West Indies to Rio de Janeiro and
Argentina. It is apparently common and wide spread in Cuba
ranging from Oriente Province on the east to Havana and Za-
pata Peninsula on the west.
This species is somewhat variable as to color and general

The anomalous condition of gynandromorphism has been
noted in the insect order Ephemeroptera several times in the
past. In view of its rarity among the mayflies, it was felt that
the collection within a period of eight days of two individuals
showing this characteristic was well worth reporting. A review
of the literature indicates that the phenomenon of gynandro-
morphism is more strikingly developed in the two specimens
herein discussed than in any other described North American
forms, chiefly because of the remarkable enlargement of the male
compound eye.
The literature concerning gynandromorphic individuals was
summarized by Daggy (1944) in a paper describing two of his
specimens in which the condition w-o seen. Until now, no ano-
malous individuals in eithe-r ne genus Heterocloeon or Pseudo-
cloeon have ever been reported. In Europe, a member of the
same subfamily, Baetis rhodani, appears to be the commonest
form showing gynandromorphism.
The gynandromorphic specimen of Heterocloeon curiosum
was taken while it was in flight over the Cullasaja River at Tur-
tle Pond Bridge, Macon County, North Carolina, on August 21,
1948. Numerous females of a species, thought at that time to
be in the genus Baetis, were seen flying at a height of from four
to ten feet above the surface of the stream. They flew over the
swiftest part of the river, occasionally dropping down to the
water. The flight was in bright sunlight and was usually in a
straight line with intermittent dips being made by individuals
in the swarm. In all, about fifty specimens were collected from
1:45-3:30 P.M. when the swarming apparently ceased. As the
specimens were collected, I observed that one seemed to be a
male, and yet no others of this sex were collected during the
afternoon, even though a careful search of the area was made.
Later examination of the specimens showed that the apparent
male was no true representative of that sex, but a gynandro-
morph which was in flight with the females. Obviously the fe-
male characteristics or habits far overshadowed its male-like

characters because, when it was caught, it was behaving as a
The following week, on May 28, while I was collecting adult
mayflies about 5:00 P.M. as they flew over a small branch of the
Whitewater River, Jackson County, North Carolina, the second
gynandromorph was taken. Again, this was not immediately
recognized as an anomaly and it was not until I returned to the
laboratory at Highlands, that I became aware of my catch. This
specimen proved to be in the genus Pseudocloeon. Fortunately,
both males and females were taken along with the gynandro-
morph and so identification was possible. It belongs to a new
species which I shall describe in a future report.
Since both males and females were taken at the same time
as the second specimen, I cannot report as to whether it behaved
as a male or as a female; however, at the time of collection, the
individuals wore not flying in swarms, but individually with the
males rising and falling in tnh ofa hion typical of the group, some-
times rising to a height of at least fifteen foot and dropping to
within inches of the water. The flight of the female was a
straight forward advance with occasional dips. No mating was
observed at that time.
The right side of the head is typical of a true male with the greatly en-
larged turbinate eye. Coloration of the right eye follows the usual pat-
tern for males of this genus with the upper portion orange-red in color
and the basal portion blackish gray. The distribution of pigmentation on
the vertex of the right side of the head is obscured by the enlarged eye.
The left side of the head bears an eye which does not differ in appearance
from that of a normal female compound eye. Pigmentation on the left
side of the head is similar to that of females. Figure 3 shows an oblique
view of the head of the specimen.2
The meso- and metanotum are much more heavily pigmented on the
left side of the mid-dorsal line than they are on the right. Figure 5 indi-

cates the difference in intensity of coloration in this part of the insect.
The prosternum io hPavily pigmented with reddish brown, while the meso-
and metasternum are pigmented laterally but in the median area, the
sternites are white.
The left prothoracic leg is missing and the right appears to be similar
to that of normal females taken at the same time as the gynandromorph.
The meso- and metathoracic legs are not distinctive. The wings appear to
be normal.
The abdomen has the typical male distribution of pigment dorsally,
with tergite 1 heavily colored, tergite 2 considerably lighter, and tergites
3-5 white with brownish lateral markings. On the latter tergites, there
is no indication of either the right or left sides being more heavily pig-
mented. Tergites 6-10 are rather dark and give the abdomen the common
male color pattern consisting of a central white area (tergites 3-5) bounded
anteriorly and posteriorly by darkly colored segments. It is more usual
for tergite 6 to be white or light colored in normal males of other species
of Pseudocloeon. Figure 5 illustrates the distribution of color in the dorsal
part of the abdomen. Ventrally, the abdominal sternites are mostly white
with some lateral reddish-brown coloring.
In most males of this genus, abdominal segments 2-6, being filled with
air, appear semi-translucent, while in females which still retain their ova,
the abdomen lacks the translucent appearance until the eggs are dis-
charged. The gynandromorph, however, seems to have its abdomen par-
tially filled with underdeveloped ovaries, and, although the central portion
is white as in males, there is no evidence of any translucence.
One of the most interesting features of this specimen is the structure
of the genitalia. The left gonapod has developed, but development is un-
usual in that the clasper is rudimentary. There is no evidence whatsoever
of the development of the right clasper. The terminal abdominal segment
is drawn in ventral view in figure 4.
CURIOSUM (McD.) The gynandromorph of Heterocloeon curiosum, with
its male-like characteristics concentrated in the anterior part of the body,
is considerably less masculine than is the specimen of Pseudocloeon de-
scribed above.
The head is divided longitudinally into a male side on the left and
female on the right. The turbinate male eye is not completely normal since
it is not regularly oval in dorsal outline. It bulges upward and laterally
giving it an irregular appearance. This is shown in figure 2. The color
pattern on the dorsum of the head is somewhat obscured on the left side by
the enlarged compound eye. A normally developed female eye is present
on the right side of the head. The left dorsal side of the thorax has the
dark brown coloration characteristic of males, while the right side is much
more lightly colored and is approximately the same shade as that of a nor-
mal female taken in flight along with the gynandromorph (Figure 1).
Ventrally, the thorax is rather uniformly dark colored. The forelegs on
both sides of the specimen are normal and resemble those of typical fe-
males. The other legs are also normal. The forewings are normal but
the hind wings are so minute as to be almost lost against the coloration


of the thorax. This is true of normal females as well, and is characteristic
of the genus.
The remainder of the specimen seems to be identical with that of a
normal female. Abdominal segments 1-6 appear, when viewed from the
side, to be filled with air, and are semi-translucent; however, one ovum
protrudes from the opening of each oviduct between the 7th and 8th seg-
ments. The removal of a small part of the lateral wall of the posterior
part of the abdomen showed the presence of ova within that section. It
is very likely that this specimen had mated as a female and then released
most of its eggs before capture. There is no indication,of the development
of any male external genitalia. The caudal filaments resemble those of a
normal female.

Since the author undertook the study of the Buprestid fauna
of Florida many new and interesting data have come to light.
These data will be presented in this paper and it is hoped that the
information will add to the knowledge of the Coleopterous fauna
of Florida. At present eighty-one species, two varieties and two
subspecies are recorded from Florida.
The author wishes to acknowledge the aid given him by Dr.
F. N. Young, University of Florida; Dr. J. N. Knull, Ohio State
University, and Mr. C. A. Frost, Framingham, Massachusetts.

Specimens are in the collection of the Department of Ento-
mology, University of Florida, except where otherwise noted.

Agriculus macer LeConte
This is a new record for Florida. A pair was taken in copu-
lation, VIII-8-48, by Mr. Jon Herring, Department of Biology
and Geology, University of Florida, at Payne's Prairie, 3 miles
south of Gainesville, Alachua County. Though the host was not
given by Mr. Herring, Fisher records it as hackberry and the
Prairie abounds with the latter. Determination was made
by Mr. C. A. Frost. The male is in the collection of Dr. F. N.
Agrilus abductus Horn
This is a new record for Florida. One specimen, a female,
was taken by Dr. Young, IV-10-48, in Marion County on Quercus
myrtifolia. Determination was made by Mr. C. A. Frost. The
specimen is in Dr. Young's collection.

Agrilus lecontei s.sp. celticola Fisher
This is a new record for Florida. There is a specimen in
the collection of Mr. C. A. Frost labelled "Marianna, C17-55".

Agrilus cupricollis Gory
Two specimens collected by Dr. Young in the Ocala Scrub,
Marion County, IV-10-48 on Quercus myrtifolia. Determina-
tions were made by Mr. Frost.

Agrilzs imbellis Crotch
Six specimens were collected by Dr. Young, IV-22-48, 2.7
miles north of Newberry, on Leachea sp. Four of the specimens
are in the collection of Dr. Young. Determinations were made
by Mr. Frost.
Agrilus dozieri Fisher
Four specimens were collected by Mr. Howard Weems, pres-
ently on the staff of the Department of Biology, University of
Mississippi, Mr. Walter Thames, Entomologist, Everglades Ex-
periment Station, Belle Glade, and the author. The specimen
taken by Mr. Weems was on oak, 1 mile south of Gainesville,
III-21-48. The remaining three specimens were taken by Mr.
Thames and the author on the foliage of Quercus niger at



Sugarfoot Hammock, 4 miles west of Gainesville, III-20-48 and
IV-5-48. Heretofore Agrilus dozieri Fisher has only been taken
on hophorn bean (Ostrya virginiana). Specimens are in the
collections of Mr. Weems, Dr. Young, Mr. Frost, and the Depart-
ment of Entomology.

Eupristocerus cogitans (Weber)
This is a new record for Florida. Dr. Young collected a
specimen in Walton County, V-2-48, about 5.6 miles east of Free-
port, resting on the foliage of alder (Alnus rugosa). This speci-
men was determined by comparing it with specimens of north-
ern cogitans that were sent the author by Mr. Frost. The speci-
men is in Dr. Young's collection.

Dicerca chrysea Melsheimer
This is a new record for Florida. Two specimens, both males,
were collected by Dr. Young near Torreya State Park, Liberty
County, resting on pine. In a communication from Mr. Frost
who made the determinations, they were said to answer very
well to chrysea except-the apices of the elytra of the two speci-
mens are more obliquely truncate than any in his series, though
a few have indications of it. Mr. Frost expressed amazement
that the species should occur so far south and asked if there has
been some building going on in the locality where collected that
called for white pine from the northeast. It is possible that they
were introduced. White pine extends down into Georgia, and
Professor L. A. Hetrick of the Department of Entomology, Uni-
versity of Florida, informs the author that there are white pines
growing in Gainesville as ornamentals. The specimens are in
Dr. Young's collection.

Buprestis nuttalli (Kirby)
This is a new record for Florida. The author collected a
female ovipositing on a freshly cut log of Pinus palustris, IV-
29-48, 2.5 miles west of Gainesville. Realizing the confusion
between this species and Buprestis consularis Gory, the author
sent the specimen to Dr. Knull who determined it to be consu-
laris Gory. In a recent paper, Knull separates the two species
on the basis of the male genitalia. There is another speci-
men in the collection of the Department of Entomology dated
V-17-31, Seminole County, and a specimen in the collection of


Dr. Young, IV-10-46, Liberty County. These, in addition to the
first mentioned specimen, key down to nuttalli (Kirby) in Hei-
fer's key.
Buprestis aurulenta Linn6
This is a new record for Florida. One specimen was found
by the author in the undetermined collection of Coleoptera of
Florida State University, Tallahassee. It was preserved in
formaldehyde. This specimen was not labelled as to date or lo-
cality, but Dr. Esda Deviney, Head Pr'ofessor of the Department
of Biology, told the author that all of the specimens preserved
in formaldehyde were collected by her students in Leon County
at one time or another, and the author has labelled it as such.

Buprestis maculipennis Gory
A female was captured by the author, VIII-13-48, in Gaines-
ville, ovipositing on painted pine lumber.

Buprestis lineata Fabricius
Two specimens examined by the author have such peculiar
elytral maculations that they should be mentioned. One of the
specimens has 22 small red spots scattered over the elytra, bear-
ing not even the remotest resemblance to vittae. The other speci-
men has a large, irregular, brick-red spot in the center of each
elytron, with an apical spot on the right elytron. There is also
an apical spot on the left elytron but it is connected to the large
median spot by a thin line.

Melanophila notata (Castelnau and Gory)
A specimen from a series of M. notata (C. & G.) collected by
Mr. Howard Weems, at light, V-16-47, in Gainesville, has only
one round yellow spot on the basal third of each elytron. This
unusual specimen was sent to Mr. W. S. Fisher, then of the
Division of Insect Identification, for comment. In a communi-
cation to the author, Mr. Fisher wrote, "Your specimen is the
only one I have seen with only a single round yellow spot on
each elytron." This specimen is in the collection of the Depart-
ment of Entomology, University of Florida. Another specimen
in the collection conforms perfectly to the elytral maculation of
Horn's variety.



Melanophila obtusa Horn
This is a new record for Florida. One specimen was reared
from a twig of Pinus sp., V-48, Alachua Air Base, Alachua
County. Dr. Knull informed the author that there are two speci-
mens in his collection from Orlando and Sanford.

Actenodes simi Fisher
This is a new record for Florida. This record is in the col-
lection of Dr. J. N. Knull and was collected by Dr. and Mrs.
Knull in Dade County, V-11-32.

Actenodes auronotata (Castelnau and Gory)
There is a specimen in the Florida State Plant Board collec-
tion that was taken on Australian pine (Causarina equistifolia),
Hialeah, VI-30-48.

Acmaeodera tubulus (Fabricius)
Ten specimens were collected by Dr. F. N. Young at the Tor-
reya Ravines, Liberty County, IV-30-46, feeding on Ruellia sp.
Five specimens are in the collection of Dr. Young.

Acmaeodera pulchella (Herbst)
Three specimens in the Florida State Plant Board collection
were examined by the author and the following hosts and locali-
ties noted: Spanish needle (Yucca sp.), Gotha, V-19-42; Winter
Haven, V-10-48 Eriocaulon sp. Dr. Phillips, VI-30-48.

Pachyschelus schwarzi Kerremans
A large series of this small Buprestid was collected on the
leaves of Psorolea sp. in many Central Florida localities. One
specimen was collected by Mr. W. G. Genung in Quincy, on
Brachys fasciferus Schwarz
A male was collected at Archer, IV-3-48, by sweeping Rubus
Anthaxia quercata (Fabricius)
One specimen, a female, was collected by Dr. Young 2.7 miles
north of Newberry on runner oak. This specimen is extremely
aberrent in its coloration having the prothorax and elytra brown,



with a violaceous tinge when placed under a light, and is strongly
shining. The front of the head is brightly purplish-red, flecked
with golden spots, becoming dull toward the occiput, and having
a large golden spot below each eye. These spots are separated
by a median depression, and the margins of the head and prono-
tum are faintly green. The ventral surface is less shining and
dark brown. The specimen is in the collection of Dr. Young.

This part of the bibliography covers only the works of Dud-
ley Moulton, one of the outstanding authorities on the Thysanop-
tera. Twenty years ago Mr. Moulton and Dr. Stanley B. Free-
born suggested that the writer take up the study of thrips and
have continued to offer encouragement. Mr. Moulton has gen-
erously made his collection available for study and has offered
many helpful suggestions throughout this period. The world-
wide collection of thrips, composed of about 25,000 slides, which
Mr. Moulton has assembled during the past forty-five years is
deposited at the California Academy of Sciences, Golden Gate
Park, San Francisco.
,The following list of species described totals 47 new genera
and subgenera, and 480 new species and varieties.
In addition to the systematic work on thrips, Mr. Moulton
worked out the life history and early control measures for the
pear thrips. His publications on species of economic importance
are listed separately.

Respectfully submitted,
Treasurer-Business Manager
Approved December 1, 1948
Auditing Committee




The executive committee has decided to cancel plans for the
Sanford meeting so that the Florida Entomological Society can
meet jointly with the American Association of Economic Ento-
mologists and the Entomological Society of America in Tampa,
Florida, December 13-16.
It is now planned to have a short business meeting sometime
during the session for the election of new officers and the dis-
cussion of new business. There will be no other special meet-
ings of the Florida Entomological Society.
Anyone who has planned to present the results of his research
at the regular 1949 meeting of the Florida Entomological Society
should send the title of his paper, the time required, and equip-
ment needed, to the Secretary, Dr. Lewis Berner, Department
of Biology, University of Florida, Gainesville. Dr. Berner will
forward this information to the appropriate national secretary
for inclusion in the program of either the Association of Eco-
nomic Entomologists or the Entomological Society. No papers
will be read before the Florida Entomological Society sitting
as a separate group.
Arrangements for room reservations in Tampa may be made
through Mr. A. K. Dickenson, Director of Convention and Tour-
ist Bureau, P. 0. Box 420, Tampa, Florida. It is suggested that
reservations be made without delay.
