Miyamotolygus bui (Lu & Zheng, 2004)   comb. nov.

Neolygus bui Lu & Zheng, 2004   in ZHENG et al. (2004):387, 739 (original description).

Neolygus bui: YASUNAGA et al. (2012)   : 45 View Cited Treatment (diagnosis).

Distribution. India (Darjeeling) ( YASUNAGA et al. 2012), Nepal (800–2,100 m alt.) ( YASUNAGA et al. 2012), P. R. China (Shaanxi, Sichuan, Yunnan) ( YASUNAGA et al. 2012, ZHENG et al. 2004), Taiwan (Kagi, Nantou) ( ZHENG et al. 2004).

Comments. Detailed diagnostic characters and color habitus images were provided by YASUNAGA et al. (2012). The male genitalia of this species at first sight resemble those of Neolygus   , but the following characters admit placing it in our new genus: Spotted hemelytron, noticeably bicoloured metafemur, dark apex of cuneus; partly reddish head; reddish or chocolate brown apical part of metafemur; more or less darkened abdominal sternites; and endosoma with distinct primary and secondary lobal-sclerites but lacking proximal cup-like sclerite. Miyamotolygus bui   is known to be associated with inflorescences of Lantana   sp. ( Verbenaceae   ) and Mallotus   sp. ( Euphorbiaceae   ).
