The mirine plant bug genus Prolygus Carvalho, 1987 (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Miridae: Mirinae: Mirini) and superficially reminiscent taxa in eastern Asia (mainly in Japan, P. R. China and Taiwan) are reviewed. Four species in the region are now assigned to Prolygus. Three new genera, Anthophilolygus gen. nov., Miyamotolygus gen. nov. and Poppiolygus gen. nov., are proposed to accommodate Prolygus bakeri (Poppius, 1915), Neolygus rufilorum (Lu & Zheng, 2004) and Lygus bengalicus Reuter, 1885, respectively. Ten new combinations and three new synonymies are established: Apolygopsis eoa (Poppius, 1915) comb. nov. [transferred from Apolygus China, 1941]; A. fuhoshoensis (Poppius, 1915) comb. nov. [Apolygus]; A. nigra (Poppius, 1915) comb. nov. [Prolygus]; Anthophilolygus bakeri (Poppius, 1915) comb. nov. [Prolygus] = P. tainanensis (Poppius, 1915) syn. nov.; Micromimetus rubrotinctus (Carvalho, 1956) comb. nov. [Lygus sensu lato]; Miyamotolygus bui (Lu & Zheng, 2004) comb. nov. [Neolygus Knight, 1917]; M. pictus (Lu & Zheng, 2004) comb. nov. [Neolygus]; M. rufilorum (Lu & Zheng, 2004) comb. nov. [Neolygus]; Poppiolygus bengalicus (Reuter, 1885) comb. nov. [Lygus sensu lato] = Prolygus kirkaldyi (Poppius, 1915) syn. nov.; Prolygus disciger (Poppius, 1915) comb. nov. [Neolygus]; P. palauensis (Carvalho, 1956) comb. nov. [Lygus sensu lato]; P. nigriclavus (Poppius, 1915) = Neolygus nigroscutellaris (Lu & Zheng, 2004) syn. nov. Two additional new species, Anthophilolygus alaneylesi sp. nov. (central Thailand) and Micromimetus sunweni sp. nov. (Lanyu Island, Taiwan), are also described. The lectotype is designated for Lygus bengalicus Reuter. Lygus sacchari Matsumura, 1910 is regarded as nomen dubium.
