Apolygopsis fuhoshoensis  

( Poppius, 1915) comb. nov.

Lygus fuhoshoensis Poppius, 1915: 27   (original description).

Apolygus fuhoshoensis: LU & ZHENG (1998b)   : 188 (new combination); KERZHNER & JOSIFOV (1999): 63 (catalog); ZHENG et al. (2004): 149 (diagnosis).

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

Distribution. P. R. China (Yunnan) ( ZHENG et al. 2004), Taiwan (Nantou) ( POPPIUS 1915).

Comments. As in Apolygopsis eoa   based on the small size, brown tibial spines and two long processes at apex of right paramere in the holotype (images available from http://twinsecttype.nmns.edu.tw/specimen/?id= NMNSSDEI- 00185), Lygus fuhoshoensis   should also be placed in Apolygopsis   , instead of Apolygus   . This species can be distinguished from A. eoa   by the pale brown general colouration and uniformly pale cuneus. Measurements were provided by ZHENG et al. (2004): Body length 3.92, maximum width 1.71; width of head across eyes 0.85; vertex width 0.25; lengths of antennal segment I 0.50, II 1.30, III 0.83, IV 0.43; pronotum length 0.86; and pronotal width 1.49.
