OSPINA-BAUTISTA, Fabiola; LLANO, Camilo  and  REALPE, Emilio. First report of the genus Systelloderes (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Enicocephalidae) in Guzmania multiflora (Bromeliaceae) in Colombia. Rev. Colomb. Entomol. [online]. 2018, vol.44, n.1, pp.132-134. ISSN 0120-0488.

The relationship between purely predacious Enicocephalidae and plants is relatively unknown. This study reports the occurrence of two species of Systelloderes in Guzmania multiflora (Bromeliaceae) from a mountain forest of Colombia. This was conducted in the Reserva Forestal Protectora de las Cuencas Hidrográficas de Rio Blanco y Quebrada Olivares forest reserve in Caldas, Colombia. Bromeliads located at heights between one to three meters above the ground were used to collect Enicocephalidae. Systelloderes species have been previously reported in Colombia; however, this genus had not been found in bromeliads until now.
