Poekilloptera phalaenoides (Hemiptera: Flatidae) was reported on Mimosa caesalpiniaefolia (Fabaceae) in Diamantina, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Immature and adults of P. phalaenoides were collected for identification on M. caesalpiniaefolia, which represents the first report of this insect on this plant. This preliminary study showed that M. caesalpiniaefolia is a potential host of P. phalaenoides
