Genus Abbrosoga Caldwell, 1951 (in Caldwell & Martorell 1951)
Distribution: Puerto Rico
Type species: Abbrosoga errata Caldwell, 1951 (In Caldwell and Martorell, 1951)
There is only a single species recognized in this genus:
Abbrosoga errata Caldwell, 1951 - Puerto Rico
None reported. Caldwell and Martorell (1951) reported that all specimens were collected above 2000 ft.
Economic Importance: Limited. this genus is represented by a single, rarely collected, species.
This genus may be related to Anchidelphax, but the male lacks the posterior-projected extensions of the lateral margins of the pygofer opening. It is similar to Anchidelphax in coloration (pale, weak median vitta on mesonotum, etc.), general build, and some features of the genitalia. In Abbrosoga, the aedeagus is curiously bifed (unlike Anchidelphax), with the main part strongly downcurved. Abdominal segment 10 lacks processes.
Few specimens of this species are known.
From Caldwell and Martorell, 1951
This specimen appears to be it (based on genitalia). I'll post photos of genitalia when they are available.
