Manicocoris rufipes ( Fabricius, 1787) 

Gil­Santana et al. (2002) synonymyzed Paramanicocoris Lima, Hathaway & Seabra, 1948, under Manicocoris Stål, 1866  , so the genus now contains two species: M. rufipes  and M. rubroniger  ( Lima, Hathaway & Seabra, 1948). M. rufipes  was described from French Guiana and recorded additionally from Colombia, Guyana, and Brazil ( Maldonado 1990; Gil­Santana et al. 2002, 2003). This species is restricted to the Amazon basin, and it seems to be associated with Caesalpiniaceae  species ( Bérenger & Pluot­Sigwalt 1997). Precise localities from Colombia are given for the first time.
