Diagnosis and Specialized Morphology
The only species of Manangocorinae is characterized by:
- a short, globose head that barely projects anteriorly beyond the small compound eyes
- long spine on the scutellum
- forewing membrane with two cells
- 2-segmented tarsi
- absence of fossula spongiosa
This subfamily contains only one species described from Malaysia, Manangocoris horridus Miller. According to Schuh & Slater (1995), this taxon may not merit subfamily status. .
Nothing is currently known of Manangocorinae life history.
