Additions to the Bioecology of the New England Tingidae and Piesmidae (Heteroptera)
Intermittent summer collecting during the past ten years has added to my collection a considerable number of noteworthy records. These include additional stations or species previously reported from only a few localities within a particular state and for some of the less wellknown species in New England, new records for the occurrence of six species previously unreported from one or more of the New England states, and a few new host plant records.This is the first of a series of papers now in progress which will supplement my studies of the Tingidae of New England 1951 ). For ease of reerence, therefore, it follows the pattern of that study in the sequence of genera and of species. (Bailey,1951, page 5). All collections were made by the author unless otherwise specied.
