Abstract

Two new genera and three new species of Cylapinae from Brazil · are described in this paper. The two Amazonian species were collected during an Expedition undertaken by the author on the headwaters of the Rio Negro. Both these species were found in association with Fulvius quadristillatus (Stäl, 1860), also a Cylapinae, and were feeding on fungi (Auricularia) growing on rotten trees in the forest. Since nymphs were taken it is probable that the species feed and complete their life cycle on this fungus. Once proper collection is made in the tropics the number of species and genera of this primitive subfamily will certainly be greatly increased.
