ItemFifteen new species of Ozophora from Central and South America : with a key to mainland neotropical species (Hemiptera, Lygaeidae). American Museum novitates ; no. 3135(New York, N.Y. : American Museum of Natural History, 1995) Slater, James Alexander. ItemLilliputocorini, a new tribe with six new species of Lilliputocoris, and a cladistic analysis of the Rhyparochrominae (Hemiptera, Lygaeidae). American Museum novitates ; no. 2754(New York, N.Y. : American Museum of Natural History, 1982) Slater, James Alexander.; Woodward, T. E."The Lilliputocorini, a new tribe based on the genus Lilliputocoris Slater and Woodward, is described and placed in the subfamily Rhyparochrominae. The relationships of the new tribe are discussed and it is assigned to a clade also containing the Antillocorini and Lethaeini. A discussion of wing polymorphism and of zoogeography is included. A key is given to the species of Lilliputocoris. Lilliputocoris ghanaensis (Ghana), L. grossocerata (Borneo), L. neotropicalis (Brazil), L. seychellensis (Seychelles Islands), L. taylori (Borneo), and L. terraereginae (Australia) are described as new. Tomocoris punctatus Woodward is transferred to Lilliputocoris, redescribed and reported from Queensland and Northern Territory (Australia) and Dauan Island (Torres Straits). Dorsal view illustrations of Lilliputocoris neotropicalis, L. terraereginae, L. seychellensis, L. exiguus, and L. punctatus are included as are illustrations of the nymph of terraereginae, of the genitalia and abdomen, and scanning electron photographs of the abdominal trichbothria, scent gland scars and spiracles. A discussion of the cladistic relationships of the tribes of the Rhyparochrominae is included together with a cladogram and a character analysis"--P. . ItemNeotropical Pachygronthinae in the American Museum of Natural History (Hemiptera, Lygaeidae). American Museum novitates ; no. 1769(New York, N.Y. : American Museum of Natural History, 1956) Slater, James Alexander. ItemThe Ozophora of Panama, with descriptions of thirteen new species (Hemiptera, Lygaeidae). American Museum novitates ; no. 2765(New York, N.Y. : American Museum of Natural History, 1983) Slater, James Alexander."The Ozophora fauna of Panama is analyzed. Twenty-one species are discussed of which 13 are described as new (attagenis, baliocoris, brunnea, englemani, festiva, maculosa, notabilis, parva, robusta, scutellata, singularis, versicolor and villosa). A key is included to all species. Eight species are illustrated by dorsal views and 17 by anatomical details, chiefly of the male genitalia"--P. . ItemThe systematics, phylogeny, and zoogeography of the Blissinae of the world (Hemiptera, Lygaeidae). Bulletin of the AMNH ; v. 165, article 1(New York : American Museum of Natural History, 1979) Slater, James Alexander."The subfamily Blissinae is defined and the following aspects treated: a historical review, a summary of the biology and feeding habits, a checklist of world species, and an analysis of characters of taxonomic and phylogenetic importance. A proposed phylogeny is presented with cladograms. The distribution of the taxa is discussed and an interpretation is given. Keys are included for adults of all genera and species of the world, and for fifth instar nymphs of all species for which they are known. A diagnosis is given for each genus as well as its original reference, synonymy, type species, and general distribution. A figure is included for at least one species of each genus as well as 170 figures of anatomical details and 19 diagrams showing phylogenetic relationships. Slaterellinae Drake and Davis is placed as a junior synonym of Blissinae. Blissus navis Slater is transferred to Capodemus, Macropes tinctus Distant to Cavelerius, and Dimorphopterus aleocharoides Jakovlev to Ischnodemus. Neoblissus Bergroth is placed as a junior synonym of Blissus Burmeister. Pseudoblissus is erected as a new genus to contain Blissus trispinosus Slater"--P. 5.
