Thread-legged assassin bugs (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Reduviidae: Emesinae): Collartidini, Leistarchini, Emesini, and Metapterini of Taiwan are surveyed and four species are described as new. Expand
Redefinition of Acanthosoma and taxonomic corrections to its included species (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Acanthosomatidae).
The genus level diagnostic characters of Acanthosoma Curtis, 1824, Anaxandra Stål, 1876, and Sastragala Amyot & Serville, 1843 are discussed and several misidentifications in previous works are corrected. Expand
The assassin bug subfamilies Centrocnemidinae and Holoptilinae in Taiwan (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Reduviidae)
The assassin bugs (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Reduviidae) of the sub- family Centrocnemidinae and Holoptilinae of Taiwan are surveyed, the taxa are diagnosed, illustrated, and keyed. The nomenclature of… Expand
Maternal care in Acanthosomatinae (Insecta: Heteroptera: Acanthosomatidae)—correlated evolution with morphological change
It is shown that maternal care is an apomorphic trait that has arisen multiple times from the presence of PO within the subfamily Acanthosomatinae, which suggests an evolutionary trade-off between the two traits resulting from physiological costs. Expand
The identity of jewel bugs described by Shonen Matsumura from Taiwan (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Scutelleridae)
Based on the type material deposited at Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan, Matsumura’s species are documented and their identities are clarified and the following new synonymies are proposed. Expand

The Indomalayan species of the genus Alphocoris Germar, 1839 (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Scutelleridae: Odontotarsinae: Odonotarsini) are revised and are restricted to the Afrotropical Region. Expand

This application is to conserve the widely used specific name Metochus abbreviatus Scott, 1874, for a species of rhyparochromid bugs from East Asia. Expand
The identity of Acanthosoma vicinum, with proposal of a new genus and species level synonymy (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Acanthosomatidae).
No nomenclatural changes are proposed in this paper, but an application has simultaneously been submitted to the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature to give the specific name dorsalis precedence over thespecific name vicinum. Expand
Taxonomic review of the plant bug subfamily Isometopinae for Taiwan and Japanese Southwest Islands, with descriptions of new taxa (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Miridae: Isometopinae).
The fauna of plant bug subfamily Isometopinae in Taiwan and Japanese Southwest (Nansei) Islands is reviewed and a new tribe Sophianini is proposed for two genera, Alcecoris and Sophianus, characterized principally by the conspicuously modified antennal structures. Expand
Taxonomical notes on Oriental and Pacific jewel bugs (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Scutelleridae)
No nomenclatural changes are proposed in this paper, but an application has been submitted to the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature to suppress L. obtusus. Expand
