Lygus sacchari Matsumura, 1910  

Lygus sacchari Matsumura 1910: 23   (original description).

Lygus sacchari: YASUNAGA et al. (1996)   : 92 (note on missing type specimen); SCHUH (2013) (online catalog).

Comments. This is the final unclear member of the Lygus   -complex in eastern Asia. Although the type material appears to have been lost (cf. YASUNAGA et al. 1996), this taxon, described from Taiwan, most probably belongs to Deraeocoris Kirschbaum, 1856   ( Deraeocorinae   ) or its allied genera (e.g., Dortus Distant, 1910   ), or to Prodromus Distant, 1904   ( Bryocorinae   ), judging from the original description ( MATSUMURA 1910). SHIRAKI (1913) subsequently provided a detailed redescription in Japanese and also mentioned rice, sugar cane, and various weeds as hosts. Lygus sacchari   is currently presumed to fit Dortus chinai Miyamoto, 1965   , a common graminoid inhabitant in Taiwan and southwestern Japan ( YASUNAGA 2001). This taxon nonetheless should be treated as nomen dubium, due to absence of the type series.
