, : Camptozygum aequale (Villers), a pine-feeding Mirid new to North America (Hemiptera: Miridae). Proceedings of the Entomological Society of Washington 75(2): 240-246

The European Mirid Camptozygum aequale (Vill.) was found in 11 counties in central and western Pennsylvania in 1971-72. Characters are given and figures are provided for distinguishing this species from native Mirids. Adults and nymphs were among the most abundant insects on Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) from June to early August. Nymphs were also collected on seedlings of Austrian pine (P. nigra), red pine (P. resinosa), mugho pine (P. mugo) and western yellow pine (P. ponderosa).
