Title: Kein Folientitel


1
The Polyozus-group (Miridae, Phylinae) in
Australia Systematics and host plant associations
Christiane Weirauch Division of Invertebrate
Zoology, American Museum of Natural History, New
York
2
Miridae or Plant Bugs
  • Orthotylinae Phylinae
  • gt 4, 000 described species
  • focus of PBI
  • several ant mimetic lineages
  • mostly phytophagous
  • often host-specific
  • Miridae
  • 10, 000 described species
  • rather delicate
  • asymmetrical, complex male genitalia

3
PBI Project Focus Australia
Species of flowering plants 18,000 known from
Australia, 9,000 from North America
Species of Miridae 2,000 described from North
America, 200 species from Australia
  • Depauperate fauna of Miridae?
  • Sampling bias?

4
Phylinae in Australia
Diversity of Australia largely undescribed
currently ca. 300 species of Phylini recognized

Distribution of Exocarpocoris spp.
  • Exocarpocoris spp.
  • restricted to E. aphyllus
  • E. aurum and E. tantulus sympatric at most
    localities
