Welcome to Checklist of the type material of Hemiptera: Heteroptera deposited at the Museo de La Plata, Argentina

The true bugs (Heteroptera) currently considered a suborder of the Hemiptera, represent the largest and most diverse group of Hemimetabolous insects. They are phytophagous, predatory, or hematophagous. Significant numbers of representatives of each type are known, and it is this diversity that has led many authors to comment on the success with which the Heteroptera have exploited the range of possible food sources as well as habitats. Heteroptera is a web portal and a community resource checklist for those interested in knowing the type material deposited at the Museo de La Plata (Argentina). Heteroptera makes available an up-to-date type with the actual position of the taxa and images.
