The majority of Reduviidae – unlike most other Heteroptera – has a labium that consists of only three segments. The first segment is said to be either lost or fused to the head capsule. Cladistic analysis shows that this loss or fusion occurred once or twice among basal Reduviidae and that the…

Acetropis stysi, a new species from Spain (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Miridae)

Acetropis stysi sp. nov. is described from Sierra de Gredos of Ávila province in Central Spain. The new species is most similar to A. longirostris Puton, 1875, but in some respects is also similar to A. carinata (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1841). Males are macropterous, females macropterous and…

Two new Phylinae (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Miridae) from the Canary Islands

Two new species of Phylinae (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Miridae) are described from the Canary Islands. Their habitus, several characters of external morphology and genitalia are illustrated. Systellonotus stysi sp. nov., belonging to the tribe Hallodapini, is well recognized by its scutellar hump and…

New data on the Tingidae from Gabon (Hemiptera: Heteroptera)

A revision of the Entisberus group (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Rhyparochromidae)

The genus Entisberus Distant, 1903, and related genera are revised. Neoentisberus Scudder, 1968, syn. nov., is synonymized with Retoka China, 1935, and Entisberus gibbus Zheng, 1981 is transferred to Retoka, which results in the following new combinations: Retoka brincki (Slater, 1979) comb. nov.,…
