"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. [1].
