Abstract
Thirty-two new species in the plant bug genus Orthotylus are described from the Hawaiian IsIands. The new species and their host plant associations are as follows: O. metrosideropsis n. sp., from Oahu, on Metrosideros polymorpha; O. ohia n. sp., from Oahu, on Metrosideros polymorpha; O. olapa n. sp., from Oahu, on Cheirodendron trigynum; O. perrotteticola n. sp., from Molokai, on Perrottetia sandwicensis; O. perrottetiopsis n. sp., from Oahu, on Perrottetia sandwicensis; O. dubautiae n. sp., from Kauai, on Dubautia raillardiodes; O. dubauticola n. sp., from Kauai, on Dubautia microcephala; O. pisoniacola n. sp., from Kauai, on Pisonia sandwicensis; O. elaeocarpi n. sp., from Kauai, on Eleocarpus bifidus; O. clermontiopsis n. sp., from Kauai, on Clermontia fauriei; O. pipturicola n. sp., from Kauai, on Pipturus albidus; O. pipturiphila n. sp., from Molokai, on Pipturus albidus; O. antidesmoides n. sp., from Molokai, on Antidesma platyphyllum; O. diospyrivorus n. sp., from Lanai, on Diospyros sandwicensis; O. coprosmaphagus n. sp., from Kauai, on Coprosma waimeae and Coprosma kauaiensis; O. coprosmivorus n. sp., from Lanai, on Coprosma ochracea; O. manonophila n. sp., from Kauai, on Hedyotis terminalis; O. manonovorus n. sp., from Lanai, on Hedyotis terminalis; O. manono n. sp., from Molokai, on Hedyotis terminalis; O. manonocola n. sp., from Molokai, on Hedyotis terminalis; O. manonophagus n. sp., from Molokai, on Hedyotis acuminata; O. manonoides n. sp., from Oahu, on Hedyotis terminalis; O. manoniella n. sp., from Oahu, on Hedyotis centranthoides; O. neopsychotriopsis n. sp., from Lanai, on Psychotria mariniana; O. neopsychotricus n. sp., from Maui, on Psychotria mariniana; O. kopikocola n. sp., from Kauai, on Psychotria hexandra; O. kopikovorus n. sp., from Kauai, on Psychotria mauiensis; O. kopikopsis n. sp., from Lanai, on Psychotria mariniana; O. kopikoides n. sp., from Molokai, on Psychotria mariniana; O. kopikophila n. sp., from Maui, on Psychotria mariniana; O. kiko n. sp., from Maui, on Psychotria mariniana; O. melicopoides n. sp., from Oahu, on Melicope oahuensis. Dorsal habitus photographs, figures of the male genitalic structures, and distribution maps are provided for all the above species. New distribution records are also provided for O. metrosideri Polhemus; O. pipturoides Polhemus; O. pisoniopsis Polhemus; O. clermontioides Polhemus; O. kanakanus (Kirkaldy); O. kassandra Kirkaldy; O. kassandropsis Polhemus; O. coprosmicola Polhemus; O. kopiko Polhemus; and O. neopsychotrioides Polhemus. The name Orthotylus sophoricola D. Polhemus is proposed as a replacement for Orthotylus sophorae Polhemus 2003, which due to a lapsus has proven to be a primary homonym of Orthotylus sophorae Josifov 1976. A revised checklist of Hawaiian Orthotylus species, with their host plants and island distributions, is also provided.
