Abstract:

Late in June of the past season. 1932, it was our good fortune to discover specimens of that interesting 11ttle turtleshaped bug, <I>Acantholoma denticulata</I> (Plate II, Fig. 1), feeding the flower-heads of a native perennial plant in the vicinity Ames. Since the species had not been recorded from Iowa and since so little had been written concerning the biology of shield-backed bugs in general, efforts were made to study its life and habits. The notes resulting from our studies and observations are presented here as a contribution to the general knowledge concerning the family Scutelleridae.
