Abstract:
We collected colonies of Daulocoris formosanus from nests of the subsocial wood‐feeding cockroach Salganea taiwanensis ryukyuanus for the first time. To understand the ecology of D. formosanus, we observed and characterized their behavior in a laboratory setting. We provide the first detailed record of the habitat, colony structure and feeding behavior of D. formosanus.
