The Pentatomoidea in Czechoslovakia are found mostly in southern Moravia and south and east Slovakia, where they migrated from the steppes of the south-east Europe. The Acanthoso-matidae and the Plataspidae are distinguished by their two-jointed feet; A. haemorrhoidale is the largest specie, reaching up to 17 mm in size. The Pentatoninae is the most widely represented group: Aelia acuminata, Palomena prasina, Carpocoris fuscispinus and Dolycoris baccarum live on various grasses; Pentatoma rufipes and Eurydema oleraceum live in trees. In all, over 100 species of Pentatomoidea are found in Czechoslovakia.
