Pachylis Lepeletier & Serville, 1825 is one out of 22 genera of Nematopodini Amyot & Serville, 1843, which contains some of the largest species of Coreidae Leach, 1815. With eight species, the genus is characterized by the presence of expansion on antennomeres III and ventrally on metatibiae. Pachylis is sometimes confused with Thasus Stål, 1865, but the metatibial expansions are dorsal and ventral in the latter. Pachylis and Thasus have already been treated as closely related from a taxonomic perspective, although this relationship has never been tested in previous phylogenetic analyses. A phylogeny including seven Pachylis species and four Thasus species is performed here, based on morphological data and under implied weighting. Pachylis laticornis (Fabricius, 1798) is redescribed and P. furvus Brailovsky & Guerrero, 2014 is proposed as its new synonym. The outgroup contains 44 species, 30 out of them representative of other Nematopodini, and 14 species representing other tribes and subfamilies of Coreidae. We recovered Pachylis monophyletic and sister to T. rutilus Brailovsky & Barrera in Brailovsky et al., 1994 with the remaining three species of Thasus recovered sister to the clade of T. rutilus and Pachylis. Here we propose Thasus as a new junior synonym of Pachylis following our phylogenetic results. Our results also indicate Nematopodini, Melucha Amyot & Serville, 1843, and Piezogaster Amyot & Serville, 1843 are not monophyletic, emphasizing the need for further phylogenetic studies including these taxa.

Chapter
The family Coreidae is distributed worldwide, but these phytophagous bugs are most abundant in the tropics and subtropics. In the Neotropical region, all of the subfamilies and 16 tribes are represented. In tropical ecosystems, these bugs feed on herbs and shrubs in open areas of forests as well as at the forest edge. Some species are spectacularly colored, and unusual expansions of antennae, humeral angles, femora, or tibiae occur in many groups. Some of them move lazily even when disturbed and hardly fly to escape; others are extremely nimble, fast flying away when disturbed. They are frequently encountered in crops, representing important pests in several commodities. No one common name is universally accepted for the family, and none of the frequently used names (e.g., squash bug, leatherbug, leaf-footed bug, Randwanzen) are collectively appropriate for all members of the family. © Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2015.

Fruitspotting bugs (FSB) Amblypelta nitida Stål and Amblypelta lutescens lutescens Distant (Hemiptera: Coreidae) are major native pests in subtropical and tropical horticultural crops in Australia, and key pests in avocado. Until now, using a single targeting approach, namely broad-spectrum insecticides, has been the only management option for growers. However, this approach is not sustainable in the long-term. A single strategy approach from different research teams has also not been able to find a solution, and therefore a multi-target approach is needed. In March 2011, a multi disciplinary collaborative project commenced. Team members included state government agencies from New South Wales and Queensland, the University of Queensland, BioResources Pty. Ltd., and private consultants. Major components of the management strategy under investigation are the following: 1. Chemical control 2. Monitoring and trap cropping a. Trap cropping and monitoring using alternative host and highly susceptible cultivars b. Pheromone traps 3. Biological control a. Investigation of biological control agents (ecology and biology) b. Mass-rearing of FSB and biological control agent 4. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) case studies - demonstrations on commercial farms 5. Area Wide Management (AWM) - management tested and coordinated on an areawide- scale 6. Industry adoption The project has made progress in all different components, and progress results will be presented. Different new management tools will become available at different times with new chemicals most likely to be the first new tool. The project is guided by industries including avocado, macadamia, lychee and papaya, passionfruit, and custard apples, with the avocado and macadamia industries being the major contributors.

Fruitspotting bugs, Amblypelta nitida Stål, and A. lutescens lutescens Distant (Hemiptera: Coreidae), are polyphagous, native Australian pests of a wide range of tropical and subtropical fruit and nut crops. Both species occur predominantly along Australia's eastern coastline, A. nitida from c. 17°S-35°S and A. l. lutescens from c. 11°S-27°S, and as such, they are distributed across some of Australia's most important horticultural regions. Adults are cryptic and highly mobile, making population monitoring within affected tree crops difficult. Nymphs and adults inject salivary sucrase into plant tissue while feeding; this causes significant damage to fruiting structures and often renders them unsaleable. Despite their economic importance, many aspects of fruitspotting bug biology and ecology remain understudied; their chemical ecology, host-plant relationships, movements into, out of and within crops, and interactions with natural enemies are poorly understood. Currently, control of both species relies on applications of synthetic broad-spectrum insecticides, and the recent withdrawal of endosulfan has resulted in an increased use of more disruptive compounds. This paper reviews current knowledge of fruitspotting bug biology and ecology, and the strategies that are currently employed for control. Importantly, a synthetic lure based on some of the volatile compounds emitted by male A. l. lutescens has recently been developed and incorporated into a prototype trap. The device offers a promising new approach to population monitoring and the development of integrated management strategies for this species. Areas of research critical to the development of sustainable management strategies for fruitspotting bugs include: (1) host-plant relationships between fruitspotting bugs and their crop and non-crop host plants; (2) fruitspotting bug dispersal behaviour and movement patterns between and within crops, and between crops and non-crop vegetation; (3) methods for implementing biological control strategies; (4) utilising pheromone traps for monitoring and capture of fruitspotting bugs; and (5) screening of selective insecticides.

A new genus, Pseudotheraptus , is described for a Coreid bug, Ps. wayi , sp. n., Causing early nutfall of coconuts in East Africa. Two other species, Ps. devastans (Dist.) and Ps. ugandae , sp. n., are placed in this genus, with descriptions and a key for determination of the three species. The taxonomic relation of Pseudotheraptus to other genera is discussed, with particular reference to Theraptus , in which the species now described as Ps. wayi was formerly placed provisionally, and to Amblypelta , of which one species ( A. cocophaga China) is the cause of identical damage to coconuts in the British Solomon Islands Protectorate. A key is given for the determination of the two species now remaining in the genus Theraptus .

In view of the discovery of several new species and subspecies of Amblypelta (Hemiptera, COREIDAE), some of which are either known to be or else threaten to become of economic importance, a revision of the whole genus has become necessary. The genus Amblypelta , as defined in the present paper and as known so far, is confined to Australia north of Sydney, the islands between Australia and New Guinea, New Guinea and, to the west, the Kai Is., Timor and Java; the Bismarck Archipelago, the Solomon Islands including Bougainville, Eennell and Bellona; the New Hebrides and New Caledonia. In the present revision of the genus, twelve species and five subspecies are included, of which all but seven species are new to science. Apart from the descriptions of the new species and subspecies, taxonomic notes on the previously known species are given as well as a key to all the species. The known distribution of each species is stated, and consideration given to the zoogeography of the genus as a whole, and of certain species-groups which can be recognised within the genus.
