Dicranocephalus albipes

Dicranocephalus albipes

Dicranocephalus is the only genus of the family Stenocephalidae within the bug part of Pentatomomorpha. They are sometimes also called wolfsmilch bugs in German. Some authors argue that the family Stenocephalidae comprises another genus, Psotilnus, and a total of 30 to 36 species.

Appearance

Moulet (1995) has been synonymous with Dicranocephalus and reduced the number of species on the basis of synonyms to 16. However, this approach is not uncontroversial and was not shared by Tshernova, which reversed the synonymizations in 1996. The discrepancy is mainly due to the observation of Dicranocephalus agilis, which is either a species complex, or a widely used polymorphic species. Seven species are found in Europe, three also in Central Europe.
