  • ISSN : 1021-3589



Chérot & Pauwels (2000) provided a list of the 1305 Miridae type specimens preserved in the 'Musée Royal de l'Afrique centrale' Tervuren, Belgium (MRAC). Unfortunately, it was not possible at that time to introduce in the catalogue some type-specimens of recently described African species of Cylapinae Kirkaldy, 1903 and Palaucorinae Carvalho, 1956. Moreover, several of Schmitz's types of the first of these subfamilies were accidentally omitted. We list these specimens below.
