"The Phylinae (Hemiptera, Miridae) of the Indo-Pacific are revised, including all taxa known to occur in an area ranging from the Marquesas Islands west to India, north to the Hawaiian Islands and Japan (excluding temperate Asia) and south to New Zealand (excluding Australia and the sub-Antarctic islands). Forty-six genera and 272 species are treated in detail. One new tribe, Auricillocorini, is recognized. One new genus, Biliranoides, is described in the Pilophorini. Four new genera, Auricillocoris, Cleotomiris, Cleotomiroides, and Wygomiris, are placed in the Auricillocorini; Zaratus Distant is tentatively placed in the Auricillocorini. One new genus, Podullahas, is described in the Hallodapini; Clapmarius Distant is transferred from the Mirinae to the Hallodapini. Ten new genera, Abuyogocoris, Arafuramiris, Biromiris, Ctypomiris, Papuamimus, Solomonomimus, Gulacapsus, Pseudohallodapocoris, Pseudoleucophoroptera, and Trichocephalocapsus, are placed in the Leucophoropterini; Lasiolabops Poppius and Sejanus Distant are placed in the Leucophoropterini. Five new genera, Decomioides, Gressittocapsus, Malaysiamiris, Malaysiamiroides, and Rubrocuneocoris, are placed in the Phylini. The following genera are synonymized; Cephalocapsidea Poppius = Paramixia Reuter; Trichofulvius Poppius = Hallodapus Fieber; Torma China = Decomia Poppius; and Sampsigeranus Distant = Opuna Kirkaldy. The following species are synonymized: Orthotylellus samoanus Knight, Orthotylellus rufescens Usinger, and Orthotylellus pallescens Usinger = Paramixia rufescens (Poppius); Cephalocapsidea obscurata Poppius, Orthotylellus samoanus var. nigrellus Knight, and Orthotylellus brunescens = Paramixia singalensis (Poppius); Pilophorus pulullus Poppius = Pilophorus typicus Distant; Marshalliella orientalis Poppius = Ellenia obscuricornis (Poppius); Psallus sharpianus var. pelidnopterus Kirkaldy, Opuna hawaiiensis Kirkaldy, Psallus swezeyi Kirkaldy, Tichorhinus kirkaldyi Perkins, and Psallus sharpianus luteus Zimmerman = Opuna sharpianus (Kirkaldy); and, Ragmus morosus Ballard = Campylomma livida Reuter. The following new combinations are created: Atractotomus coxalis Reuter = Druthmarus coxalis; Cephalocapsidea rufescens Poppius = Paramixia rufescens; Psallus singalensis Distant = Paramixia singalensis; Lutheriella oecophylloides Poppius = Acrorrhinium oecophylloides; Trichofulvius fasciatus Poppius = Hallodapus fasciatus; Trichofulvius zonatus Poppius = Hallodapus zonatus; Atractotomus collinus Van Duzee = Campylomma collina; Torma colae China = Decomia colae; Torma samoanus Knight = Decomia samoanus; Campylomma innotata Carvalho = Decomioides innotata; Campylomma annulatus Knight = Opuna annulatus; Sampsigeranus pilosulus Distant = Opuna pilosulus; Psallus sharpianus Kirkaldy = Opuna sharpianus. Photographic dorsal view illustrations, male genitalic line drawings, and distributional maps are presented for most species. Scanning electron micrographs of the pretarsus, metathoracic scent- gland evaporatory area, and other structures are presented for most genera. Stridulatory structures are reported for additional species of Hallodapus Fieber and are also noted to occur in a similar form in species of Ctypomiris, new genus. A glandular opening and small evaporatory area are reported to occur on the posterior margin of the mesepimeron dorsad of the metathoracic scent-gland evaporatory area; this structure is apparently widely distributed in Heteroptera, although not previously reported in the literature. A key to the genera and keys to some groups of species are presented. A discussion to phylogenetic relationships and arguments for higher category placement are presented"--P. 4.
