Padaeus Stål, 1862


Padaeus Stål, 1862  

This genus, at present, contains five primarily Mexican and Central American species, with a single species recorded from Arizona. There are no modern keys to all of the species, but Padaeus trivittatus   is rather distinctive. It has the humeral angles spinose and curved anteriorly, and the abdominal venter is pale with three longitudinal black stripes   .
