Ornithocoris pallidus Usinger 

Pickens Co., Clemson, 14 September 1936, coll. J.R. Todd.

A written record of Haematosiphon inodorus Duges  was archived in the CUAC. This genus of cimicid is native to Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico, but Usinger (1966) stated that O. pallidus  was initially misidentified in the eastern U.S.A. as H. inodorus  . Ornithocoris pallidus  is primarily an ectoparasite of chickens.
