by Thomas J. Henry
published 28 March 2007

ABSTRACT
The new species Neolygus crataegi is described from two counties in southwestern Virginia where it was collected in June on flowers of hawthorn, Crataegus spp. Dorsal and lateral digital images and a habitus illustration of the adult, scanning electron photomicrographs of selected structures, and illustrations of male genitalia are provided to help distinguish N. crataegi from other species of the genus.
