Recently, a hitherto undescribed bug species was reported in this journal (van der Heyden 2015. "Wild shot" photographs of an apparently undescribed bug species of the tribe anisoscelini from Costa Rica (Hemiptera, Heteroptera, Coreidae). Boletín de la Asociación Española de Entomología 39(3-4): 407-410.). It was placed in the tribe Anisoscelini within the family Coreidae. Most likely, this assignment is not correct: The author was informed by Richard Packauskas (Department of Biological Sciences, Fort Hays State University, Hays, United States of America), a known expert for neotropical Coreidae, that the species should be placed in the tribe Stenoscelideini, which is considered a synonym of Placoscelini by some authors (COREOIDEASF TEAM, 2015). Richard Packauskas referred to a published photograph of an adult specimen (van der Heyden, 2015) and wrote: "The bug in this picture does not have a porrect head, which all Anisoscelini have (head extended forward well beyond the antenniferous tubercles). It's head shape would place it in the Stenoscelideini, and it is reminiscent of some of the species of Stenoscelidea". Furthermore he stated: "Out of all of the coreids, only the stenoscelidiines have that abrupt head deflection, with the tylus a short nub, and the juga no longer than the tylus". In the opinion of Richard Packauskas, the reported species is definitely a new one and quite possibly belongs to a new genus (personal communication).
