Abstract

Examination of photographs and specimens from the Museum Victoria, Melbourne, Australia, allows for the incorporation of three taxa described by Reuter from Australia in 1904 into the modern classification of Miridae: Phylinae. Leptidolon vittipenne Reuter is judged to be congeneric with Polyzus galbanus Eyles and Schuh; because Leptidolon Reuter is the older name, Polyozus Eyles and Schuh is treated as a junior synonym of Leptidolon, new synonym. Psallus eximius Reuter is transferred to Wallabicoris Schuh and Pedraza, new combination, and is treated as the senior synonym of Wallabicoris cuneotinctus Schuh and Pedraza, new synonym. Sthenarus australis Reuter is transferred to Ausejanus Menard and Schuh, new combination.
