Abstract:

Three sympatric morphs of adult <I>Nezara viridula</I> (L.) from India and one from Florida were compared to determine differences in size. Differences were found in measurements of weight, width, and length. The 3 sympatric morphs from India exhibited significant differences in size. The allopatric green morphs from Florida and India were remarkably similar.
