Eurystylus coelestialium (Kirkaldy) 

Figs. 2View FIGURE 2 A –B, 5I –J, 8A, Table 1

Olympiocapsus coelestialium Kirkaldy, 1902  (n. sp.).

Eurystylus coelestialium Poppius, 1911: 2  (n. comb., key); Miyamoto & Yasunaga, 1989: 160 (list); Yasunaga et al., 1993: 59 (diag.); Schuh, 1995: 767 (cat.); Kerzhner & Josifov, 1999: 99 (cat.); Yasunaga, 2001: 233 (diag.); Zheng et al., 2004: 273 (diag.); Schuh (2002–2014) online catalog.

Eurystylus sauteri: Zheng & Lin, 2003: 328  (diag.) (not Kirkaldy, 1902).

Diagnosis. Recognized by its generally dark brown, less mottled dorsum; a pair of clear, ocellate spots on pronotum; dark scutellum with whitish lateral corners (except for darkened posterior tip); each femur creamy white (pale brown in dried specimens) with apical 1/3–1/4 darkened ( Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 A); and male endosoma with PL smooth, lacking spinules or teeth and TL sharply hooked ( Fig. 5View FIGURE 5 I –J). Total length 5.1–7.8 (♂)/ 6.3–8.1 (♀); maximum width 2.4–3.0 (♂)/ 2.9–3.3 (♀). Most similar to E. burmanicus  ; distinguished by generally darker basic coloration, somewhat thicker antennal segment II, and scutellum lacking a yellow, mesal stripe (cf. Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 A, E). Final-instar nymph ( Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 B) recognized by its uniformly pale whitish green body; clearly darkened apical parts of antennal segments II –IV; laterally darkened pronotum with a pair of ocellate spots; and 4 or 5 pairs of ocellate spots on abdominal sterna.

Biology. This common univoltine mirid is associated with various inflorescences ( Table 1) and most probably hibernates in the egg stage. In the western part of Japan mainislands and Taiwan, it frequently co-occurs with E. sauteri  . The population in warm temperate and subtropical zones may have two or more generations per year, based on collection data.
