Abstract

Schuhistes, a new genus of Leucophoropterini (Heteroptera: Miridae: Phylinae) is described from South Africa to accommodate two new species, Schuhistes lyciae and Schuhistes lekkersingia. Diagnoses, digital habitus images, illustrations of male and female genitalic structures, and detailed locality data are provided. Host data, scanning micrographs of diagnostic morphological structures – the head, vestiture, scent-gland evaporatory area, gonopore, and pretarsus - are included for both species.
