Alexander Knyshov, Fedor V. Konstantinov
The Palaearctic orthotyline genus Hyoidea Reuter, 1876 (Heteroptera: Miridae: Orthotylinae: Orthotylini), comprising nine species, is revised. Diagnoses and detailed redescriptions, data on distribution and hosts are provided for the genus and all species and a key is presented to facilitate identification of species. Photos of the dorsal habitus, scanning electron micrographs and figures of genitalic structures are given. Two species, Hyoidea horvathi Montandon, 1890 and Hyoidea kerzhneri Hoberlandt, 1963, are reported for the first time from Tunisia and Turkmenistan, respectively.
