dc.description.abstract "The following six genera of Old World Eccritotarsini (Bryocorinae) are revised, including taxa distributed from tropical west Africa to India, southeast Asia, and east to New Guinea and the Solomon Islands in the tropical western Pacific: Dioclerus Distant, Harpedona Distant, Mertila Distant, Myiocapsus Poppius, Prodromus Distant, Thaumastomiris Kirkaldy. Fifty-nine species are treated in detail, 34 of which are described as new. The genus Maurocoris Poppius is synonymized with Harpedona Distant and Prodromopsis Poppius is renewed as a synonym of Prodromus Distant. The following species are synonymized (senior synonym listed last): Mertila brevicornis Poppius = Mertila malayensis Distant; Prodromopsis basalis Poppius, Prodromopsis cuneatus (Distant), Prodromopsis scutellaris Poppius, Prodromus cochinensis Odhiambo = Prodromus clypeatus Distant; Prodromus pedunculatus Odhiambo = Prodromus oculatus (Poppius); Prodromus flavonotus Odhiambo = Prodromus thaliae China. The following new combinations are created: Maurocoris unicolor Poppius = Harpedona unicolor; Prodromus aethiopicus Poppius = Duducoris aethiopicus. Prodromus alboviridescens (Motschulsky) is assigned the status of nomen dubium. Harpedona fulvigenis (Poppius), Prodromus joveri Delattre, and Prodromus nimbus Delattre were not examined in conjunction with the present study. A dorsal habitus illustration is provided for each genus. Scanning electron micrographs of the metathoracic scent efferent system, pretarsus, and other structures are presented for most genera. Line drawings of the male genitalia and distribution maps are given for all species. A cladistic analysis of species is performed for each genus and keys for the identification of species are provided. A revised diagnosis and description of each genus are included, and descriptions or redescriptions given for all species"--P. 4. en_US

  • Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History
    The Bulletin, published continuously since 1881, consists of longer monographic volumes in the field of natural sciences relating to zoology, paleontology, and geology. Current numbers are published at irregular intervals. The Bulletin was originally a place to publish short papers, while longer works appeared in the Memoirs. However, in the 1920s, the Memoirs ceased and the Bulletin series began publishing longer papers. A new series, the Novitates , published short papers describing new forms.
