Faúndez, Eduardo I.
Tingidae is a family of tiny phytophagous Heteropterans, commonly named lacebugs (Schuh & Slater, 1995). Tingids live on plants, mainly under the leaves, on the roots, and in the canopy of trees, as well as at ground level on mosses, for example (Guilbert et al. 2014). There are about 2500 species of Tingids worldwide (Guilbert et al. 2014). In Chile we have actually 6 species of Tingidae (Faúndez & Carvajal, 2014). Most of the Chilean tingids are classifided in the Tinginae, and just one Stenocader tingidoides (Spinola, 1852) (endemic of the country) is classified in the subfamily Cantacaderinae (Carpintero & Montemayor, 2008).
