Among the many great mentors who have guided me in my search to learn more about Heteroptera: Manuel Baena, Vasily Belov, Harry Brailovsky, Boris Büche, Scott P. Carroll, Don Chandler, Rebecca Clayton, Pieter van Doesburg, Eric Eaton, Joe Eger, Dimitri Forero, Harold Grau, Ernst Heiss, Thomas J. Henry, Won Gun Kim, Chris Majka, Abdiel Park-Martin, Peter May, Laura Miller, Carl Schaefer, Michael D. Schwartz, D.R. Swanson, Merrill Sweet, and D. B. Thomas, and Vasili Belov.
In preparing the species pages I have used information from a number of scholarly articles old and new, and these are listed in the Works Consulted page for Heteroptera.
I want to thank my many friends at the Bugguide.net website who have helped with IDs, and have provided a lot of interesting discussions about True Bugs. Many of these friends are listed above or in the overall Acknowledgments page for the American Insects site.
