Abstract: The coreid bug Leptoglossus zonatus (Dallas) is an important pest that can feed on several economically important plants such as corn, soybean, sorghum, cotton, among others. In Campinas, São Paulo state, Brazil, nymphs and adults of L. zonatus have been found mainly on corn Zea mays L. In field work carried out during the month of May, at the end of the vegetative cycle of corn, adults and nymphs of L. zonatus were observed feeding on Spathodea campanulata Beauv (Bignoniaceae), a tree of African origin widely used in urban green belts, parks and street in Brazilian cities.It is possible that L. zonatus can use the plant S. campanulata as an alternative food resource during the periods when corn is not present or is not at the right vegetative stages.
