Genus Tenthecoris Scott 

Tenthecoris Scott, 1886: 65  . Type species: Tenthecoris bicolor Scott, 1886  . Monotypic.

Diagnosis. Species largely red or yellow, with black or metallic-blue markings. Eyes sessile, located in the posterior area of head.

Discussion. Carvalho (1951 c) revised the genus and provided a key to species. The species of this genus frequently become pests of orchids, causing severe chlorosis, leaf drop, and loss of flowers ( Hsiao and Sailer, 1947; Wheeler, 2001).
