Electronic identification key of the genus Chinavia Orian, 1965 (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae)

Chinavia Orian - Green Stink bugsAmong the green stink bugs, the genus Chinavia Orian is the most specious, with 85 species distributed in the Nearctic, Neotropical and Afrotropical regions. Due to the polyphagous habit, some species are considered as pests in cultivated plants, generating economic importance in this genus. In some species, we have identification problems, due to lack of studies.

Here, we provide a key to Chinavia. This tool was made from morphological and distribution data. Updates over time will be made, and we appreciate feedback from users.
