Carpocoris fuscispinus Boheman, 1851 sensu Ribes et al., 2007
Syn. : Carpocoris mediterraneus mediterraneus Tamanini, 1958, Carpocoris mediterraneus atlanticus Tamanini, 1958

Common names: Red Shield Bug [En], Pentatome meridional [Fr], Chinche mediterránea [Es]

Mesudiye, MUĞLA ● Turkey

Ribes has recently synonymized C. mediterraneus mediterraneus (Tamanini, 1958), C. m. atlanticus (Tamanini, 1958), with C. fuscispinus (Boheman, 1851). Some French entomologists didn’t agree with him.

Description: This Eurasian shieldbug has a reddish color (many variations) and 4 black divergent marks spreading from the head part and following on the pronotum. Antennas are black and legs reddish.
The humeral angles of pronotum are sharply pointed or rounded, protruding more or less (depending on the whole eco-geographical phenotype). The black spot on them is massive, with its internal edge convex.

Biology: It is a polyphagous vegetarian which feeds on Asteraceae, Umbelliferae, etc.
