Diplocysta rustica Drake 1960

Material examined: 1 M, New Guinea, Ne, Morobe prov., Mt Missim, 2000m, 27.V. 1984, pyrethrum fog of Castanopsis acuminatissima immature, Canopy, sample # 3, tree # 3303, W.C. Gagné, BPBM.

Comments: this species is known only from the type locality in New Guinea (Eubenangee, [ Drake 1960]). Of the six Diplocysta six species, three occur in New Guinea and, the other three occur in Australia. Diplocysta rustica is easily distinguished from the two other species inhabiting New Guinea species by the size and number of areolae on the hemelytral areas and the paranota. It differs from the three Australian species by the shape of the pronotal vesicule.
