The nymphal stages of the known North American species of the genus Hoplopleura are described and illustrated. Two new species are described, H. ferrisi and H. onychomydis. The former can only be recognised in the immature stages. Characters that distinguish H. arboricola K. and F. and H. erratica (Osb.) in both immature and adult stages are discussed. Keys to all immature stages are presented.
