Redescription. See Huber (1988). An earlier redescription of G. mexicanus   by Ogloblin (1955) was based on the two females from Salta, Argentina. Neotropical specimens of this species are very similar to the Nearctic ones.

Diagnosis. Gonatocerus (Gonatocerus) mexicanus   is distinguished by the following combination: female antenna as in Fig. 43 View FIGURES 43 – 46 ; forewing ( Fig. 46 View FIGURES 43 – 46 ) without brown band; mesosoma as in Fig. 44 View FIGURES 43 – 46 ; petiole reduced to a very narrow ring; ovipositor ( Fig. 45 View FIGURES 43 – 46 ) exserted almost by 0.4x own length beyond apex of gaster (extent it is exserted varies).

Distribution. NEOTROPICAL: Argentina, Costa Rica *, Cuba ( De Santis 1979), Honduras *, Mexico, and Panama *. NEARCTIC: Canada ( Huber 1988), Mexico, and USA. OCEANIA: Hawaiian Islands ( USA: Hawaii).

Hosts. Draeculacephala mollipes (Say)   , D. minerva Ball   , D. producta (Walker)   [as D. cubana Metcalf & Bruner   ], Draeculacephala   sp., an unidentified “green rice leafhopper” ( Cicadellidae   ), and Podops   sp. ( Hemiptera   : Pentatomidae   ) ( Huber 1988; Huber & Beardsley 2000). The pentatomid record needs confirmation because true bugs are unlikely hosts for Gonatocerus   species.
