-In the North American Miridae, nine new synonyms for species and one for a genus are proposed, replacement names are given for two homonyms, ten species are transferred to different genera, and six lectotypes are selected. Recent study of the literature and type material in several museums has revealed a number ofsynonyms, homonyms, and incorrectly placed species. These discoveries are here presented to make them available for entry in the forthcoming catalog of the Heteroptera ofthe…

NEWLY RECOGNIZED HOLARCTIC AND INTRODUCED PLANT BUGS IN NORTH AMERICA (HETEROPTERA: MIRIDAE)

The first North American records for Deraeocoris punctulatus, Labopidea artemisiae, and Labopidesa bermani Kerzhner indicate that the species are naturally Holarctic, and collections of Orthotylus ochrotrichus Fieber from Royal Oak, British Columbia, and Malacocoris chlorizans Panzer from British Columbia and Washington state suggest that these species are adventive to North America.
