Family MIRIDAE 

Lopidea nigridea serica Knight 

Reported from Alaska by Maw et al. (2000), based on 1 ♀, with data Tok, 22.vii. 1982 (L.A. Kelton) [ CNC]. Dr. M.D. Schwartz has determined that this specimen is actually L. dakota Knight  (see above). Hence, Lopidea nigridea serica  should be deleted from the list of Alaska Heteroptera  .

Trigonotylus americanus Carvalho 

Recorded from Hope by Scudder (1997). However, a male specimen with data AK, Hope, Kenai Pen., 15.vii. 1951 (W.J. Brown) [ CNC] has recently been dissected by Dr. M.D. Schwartz and determined as T. viridis (Provancher)  . A female with the same data is evidently T. caelestialium (Kirkaldy)  . Hence, T. americanus  should be removed from the list of Alaska Heteroptera  .
