Summary:
Recently, Pamela Donaldson from Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu in India sent the author photographs of different instars (Figs. 1a and 1b) and an adult specimen (Fig. 2) of a bug species, which she had taken during a stay in Costa Rica. Without any doubtthe species shown in the photographs belongs to the tribe Anisoscelini within the family Coreidae. An identification of the species was not possible, in spite of extensive investigation, from the early works by Distant (1880-1893) and Champion (1897-1901) to the online database Coreoidea Species File Online by the Coreoideasf Team. Therefore, Dr. Harry Brailovsky from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), a known expert for neotropical Coreidae, was contacted - asking him if he could identify the species on the basis of a photograph of an adult specimen which was sent to him. Dr. Brailovsky informed the author that he could not find any similar bug in the collection of the UNAM and that the species in doubt might be a new one (personal communication). Unfortunately, no specimens of the species were collected, meaning that a valid description according to the rules of the ICZN is not possible. Nevertheless, the photographs are published here. Additional data on the finding may give the opportunity to search for specimens of the species in the future, so -in case that it is a new one- the opportunity to describe it may arise.
