Leptoglossus occidentalis is reported for the first time from Illinois and Michigan, and confirmed for Indiana. A key to the species of Leptoglossus occurring in America north of Mexico is presented. Leptoglossus occidentalis was originally described in 1910 by Otto Heidemann from an adult male and female collected in Placer County, California and Utah (respectively?). He also reported examining additional "species" (specimens?) from California, Colorado, and Vancouver and stated, "the species… Expand

Abstract. Described in 1910 from California, Colorado, New Mexico, Oregon, and Utah, Leptoglossus clypealis Heidemann was known as far east as eastern Missouri by the early 1940s; it was recordedExpand
Further Eastern Range Extension and Host Records for Leptoglossus Occidentalis (Heteroptera: Coreidae): Well-Documented Dispersal of a Household Nuisance
Its direct economic impact results from reducing the quality and viability of conifer seed crops, and feeding tests in western North America indicate it has the potential of feeding on the seeds of most commercially important conifers there (Hedlin et al. 1990). Expand
