Apolygopsis eoa ( Poppius, 1915)   comb. nov.

( Fig. 72 View Figs 66–72 )

Lygus eous Poppius 1915: 27   (original description).

Apolygus eous: LU & ZHENG (1998b)   : 186 (new combination); KERZHNER & JOSIFOV (1999): 63 (catalog); ZHENG et al. (2004): 146 (diagnosis).

Type material examined. HOLOTYPE: ♁, TAIWAN: Fuhosho , Formosa   [currently Nantou City], 7 Sep, H. Sauter (without USIs, image examined, DEIC, Fig. 72 View Figs 66–72 ).

Distribution. Taiwan (Nantou) ( POPPIUS 1915).

Comments. Although LU & ZHENG (1998b) placed this Taiwanese species in Apolygus   , images of the holotype suggest it is more evidently related to some representatives of Apolygopsis   , particularly A. nigritula (Linnavuori, 1963)   in overall appearance. Comparing with A. nigritula   ( Fig. 85 View Figs 83–93 ), the holotype of A. eoa   ( Fig. 72 View Figs 66–72 ) differs only in being smaller in size and has the base of antennal segment II pale. Accordingly, Lygus eous   is transferred from Apolygus   to Apolygopsis   . The significantly small size and reddish brown tibial spines of this mirid also confirm its placement in Apolygopsis   . Measurements of the male was given by ZHENG et al. (2004): Body length 3.71, maximum width 1.75; width of head across eyes 0.91; vertex width 0.27; lengths of antennal segment I 0.51, II 1.32, III 0.80; pronotum length 0.86; and pronotal width 1.49.
