ABSTRACT Nezara viridula L. is a highly polyphagous and cosmopolitan pentatomid stink bug. Despite its economic importance, aspects of its biology are poorly understood. N. viridula has one primary bacterium associated with its gastric caeca, which females provide to offspring by smearing it on the surface of eggs during oviposition. We studied the impact of three temperatures and egg mass surface sterilization on N. viridula's nymphal development rate and reproductive performance. Our results… 
Role of symbiotic gut bacteria in the development of Acrosternum hilare and Murgantia histrionica
TLDR
The results show that egg mass surface sterilization eliminates or reduces the prevalence of this bacterium‐insect symbiosis in both species and indicate that the degree of mutualism in this association for pentatomid species is variable.
Removal of gut symbiotic bacteria negatively affects life history traits of the shield bug, Graphosoma lineatum
TLDR
The symbiont population was decreased in the newborn nymphs hatched from the surface‐sterilized eggs (the aposymbiotic insects), and this reduction imposed strongly negative effects on the insect host.
Obligate association with gut bacterial symbiont in Japanese populations of the southern green stinkbug Nezara viridula (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
TLDR
It is reported that N. viridula from Japanese populations consistently harbors the same gammaproteobacterial gut Symbiont, but, in contrast with previous work, experimental sterilization of the symbiont resulted in severe nymphal mortality, indicating an obligate host–symbiont relationship.
IMPACT OF TEMPERATURE ON THE MAINTENANCE OF STINK BUGS CAECA-ASSOCIATED SYMBIONTS
Impacts of climate change may affect population performance directly or indirectly through mediated effects on their mutualists. Recently, my colleagues and I showed that the stink bugs species
Role of Symbiotic Bacteria in the Growth and Development of the Sunn Pest, Eurygaster integriceps
TLDR
Results indicate that bacterial symbionts play a crucial role in the successful development of the host, by combining two different approaches to manipulate the host's microbial community: the supplementation of antibiotics into the insects' diet and egg surface sterilization.
Desempeño biológico y reproductivo de Oebalus insularis Stal (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) en diferentes plantas hospedantes
TLDR
The biological and reproductive parameters of this insect confirmed their adaptation to the alternative host E. colona, optimizing the production of eggs subjected to T. podisi parasitism.
Developmental biology and demographic parameters of antestia bug Antestiopsis thunbergii (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae), on Coffea arabica (Rubiaceae) at different constant temperatures
TLDR
Basic information on A. thunbergii biology is provided that will contribute to a better understanding of the pest distribution and dynamics on arabica coffee in East Africa.
Infections patterns and fitness effects of Rickettsia and Sodalis symbionts in the green lacewing Chrysoperla carnea
TLDR
A negative impact of Sodalis on the reproduction success of the green lacewing is found and the Rickettsia/Sodalis/Ch.
Infection Patterns and Fitness Effects of Rickettsia and Sodalis Symbionts in the Green Lacewing Chrysoperla carnea
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the fitness costs accrued by Sodalis infections might be more tolerable in the laboratory than in natural populations, as the latter are also prone to fluctuating environmental conditions and natural enemies.
Southern Green Stink Bugs (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) as Vectors of Pathogens Affecting Cotton Bolls — A Brief Review
TLDR
This review documents the identification and description of the cotton disease; potential causal agents and insect vectors; conclusive identification of Pentoea egglomerans (Ewing and Fife) Gavini et al. as the causative agent of the disease; establishment of southern green stink bug as a model insect based on ingestion, retention, and transmission of the Disease to cotton bolls; determination of vulnerability of bolls of different ages to disease.

Vertical Transmission of a Pentatomid Caeca-Associated Symbiont
TLDR
The high AT content of the symbiont’s 16S rRNA in relation to other insect endosymbionts, its location in the midgut of the host insect, oral transmission, and survival of aposymbiotic individuals suggest this symbiosis may be recently established.
Capsule-Transmitted Gut Symbiotic Bacterium of the Japanese Common Plataspid Stinkbug, Megacopta punctatissima
TLDR
The Japanese common plataspid stinkbug deposits small brown particles, or symbiont capsules, on the underside of the egg mass for the purpose of transmission of symbiotic bacteria to the offspring, suggesting that the bacterium is essential for normal development and growth of the host insect.
Artificial rearing of Nezara viridula (L.) and N. antennata Scott (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) with semi-solid meridic diets
TLDR
Semi-solid meridic diets for rearing two related species of Pentatomidae, Nezara viridula and N. antennata, were developed and casein was the only ingredient of the meridIC diets essential for nymphal development of N.viridula.

TLDR
Psyllids, whiteflies, aphids, and mealybugs are members of the suborder Sternorrhyncha and share a common property, namely the utilization of plant sap as their food source, and the different properties of the genomes and fragments of the genome suggest that there are different constraints on the permissible evolutionary changes.
Nymphal and adult performance of genetically determined types of Nezara viridula (L.) (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae), under different temperature and photoperiodic conditions
TLDR
Results demonstrate that type O is the most adapted to the cooler temperature and shorter photoperiod, which explains its greater abundance in south Brazil.
Fertility and life expectancy of the predator Supputius cincticeps (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) exposed to sublethal doses of permethrin.
The stinkbug Supputius cincticeps (Stål) (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) can be found in agricultural and forest ecosystems feeding primarily on larvae of Coleoptera and Lepidoptera, where it can be
Adaptive Functions of Nymphal Aggregation in the Southern Green Stink Bug, Nezara viridula (L.) (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae)
TLDR
It was confirmed that first instars do not feed, so aggregation had no role in nutrient intake, and aggregation apparently does not function as a means of contacting essential symbiotes.
Facultative bacterial symbionts in aphids confer resistance to parasitic wasps
TLDR
Investigation of aphids for vulnerability of the aphid host to a hymenopteran parasitoid, Aphidius ervi, shows that infection confers resistance to parasitoids attack by causing high mortality of developing Parasitoid larvae.
Life History of Podisus maculiventris (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) Adult Females Under Different Constant Temperatures
TLDR
Analysis of cumulative egg production suggests that 26°C may be more suitable for maintaining colonies of P. maculiventris because of the sustained levels of egg production over a longer period, compared with the 30°C treatment.
Costs and benefits of symbiont infection in aphids: variation among symbionts and across temperatures
TLDR
Findings reveal a role for heritable symbionts in the adaptation of aphids to their abiotic environments and add to an expanding body of knowledge on the adaptive significance of symbiosis.
