About this toolinterceptions of Tingidae at U.S. ports
Fact sheets in this tool describe 50 genera of lace bugs, but they also include photos and interception information for many more species within those genera.
While a fair number of Tingidae are intercepted at U.S. ports of entry, about 46% of the species make up most of the named records. 74 taxa listed in USDA’s pest interception databases (see chart below) comprise 96% of Tingid interceptions.
Among all Tingid interceptions, those identified just to the family level of Tingidae account for nearly 25% of records, while Corythucha gossypii and Corythucha sp. interceptions together comprise about 30%.
The following taxa are those species and genera comprising 96% of interception records as of May 4, 2020. Species listed are ranked by number of interception records, in descending order; species not shown have been intercepted only one or two times. Actual interception numbers through May 4, 2020 for the species shown range from nearly 700, to 3.
