1 Christian RIEGER 1 & Wolfgang RABITSCH 2 1 Nürtingen, Germany 2 Dept. Evolutionary Biology, University Vienna, Wien, Austria Taxonomy and distribution of Psallus betuleti (Fallén) and P. montanus Josifov stat. nov. (Heteroptera, Miridae) Rieger, C. & W. Rabitsch, Taxonomy and distribution of Psallus betuleti (Fallén) and P. montanus Josifov stat. nov. (Heteroptera, Miridae). Ti dschrift Tijdschrift voor Entomologie 149: , figs [issn ]. Published 1 December The subspecies Psallus betuleti montanus Josifov, 1973 is raised to species rank (Psallus montanus Josifov, 1973 stat. n.). Psallus montanus is distributed in eastern North America and Europe. Psallus betuleti apparently is a Holarctic species occurring across northern North America, northern western Europe and eastern Siberia. Coloration, male vesica and sclerotized rings in the bursa copulatrix of females provide discriminating characters, which are illustrated. Dr. Christian Rieger, Lenbachstraße 11, D Nürtingen, Germany. Dr. Wolfgang Rabitsch, Dept. Evolutionary Biology, University Vienna, Althanstraße 14, A-1090 Wien, Austria. Key-words.

Psallus betuleti was described by Fallén (1826: 15) from Sweden (Province Skåne, Gyllebo). According to Kerzhner & Josifov (1999: 401), no type material is present in the Museum of Zoology at the University of Lund (Sweden), where most of Fallén s types are housed. However, it is possible that syntypes may be deposited in other collections. Psallus betuleti montanus Josifov, 1973 was described from material from Bulgaria (Mt Vitosha) and considered endemic to the Bulgarian mountains (Josifov 1973, Heiss & Josifov 1990). Bacchi & Rizzotti Vlach (1994) reported this subspecies from Italy (Venetia, Lombardy) and Austria (North Tyrol). While preparing a critical check-list of Austrian Heteroptera, specimens identified as Psallus betuleti in Austria were found to be P. b. montanus (Rabitsch 2004, 2005). In the world mirid catalogue, Schuh (1995) listed P. montanus Josifov in the index, but not in the text. This was corrected by Kerzhner & Schuh (2001). Wyniger (2004) also did not include Psallus betuleti montanus in her taxonomic study of Central European Psallus. Her high-quality illustrations of the male vesica for most species clearly show that she correctly recognized P. b. betuleti. 161

Literature data Psallus betuleti (Fallén, 1826): The Netherlands and Belgium (Aukema in litt.), Switzerland (Wyniger 2004). Psallus montanus Josifov, 1973 stat. n.: Austria (Bacchi & Rizzotti Vlach 1994, Rabitsch 2004), Bulgaria (Josifov 1973), Germany (Rabitsch 2004), Italy (Bacchi & Rizzotti Vlach 1994), The Netherlands and Belgium (Aukema in litt.). Material examined The list of specimens studied (including exact localities) is given in the appendix. Taxonomy The male vesica of Psallus betuleti and P. montanus is diagnostic (fig. 1). The apex of the vesica is elongate in P. betuleti but shorter and basally enlarged in P. montanus. The apical sclerite marginally serrate and of almost quadrate shape in P. montanus but more rectangular and less serrate in P. betuleti. The sclerotized rings of the bursa copulatrix in females also discriminate both taxa. In P. montanus these appear more elongate, whereas in P. betuleti they are more quadrangular (fig. 2). Further, coloration of males and females differs in both taxa (fig. 3). Males of P. betuleti appear almost completely black, whereas males of P. montanus are almost black to brown. Pilosity of the fore wings is sparse in P. betuleti and dense in P. montanus. The cuneus of P. montanus in both sexes is paler than the corium, whereas the cuneus of P. betuleti appears more or less unicolorous with the corium. Females of P. betuleti are black, whereas females of P. montanus are pale to dark red. The eyes of P. montanus are larger (width of the eye: interocular distance 1:1.2 in P. montanus and 1: in P. betuleti). Both taxa show constant and distinct differences in male and female genitalia. Therefore they should be treated as separate species. Distribution Psallus betuleti is considered naturally Holarctic, with the North American populations distributed north of 55 N (Maw et al. 2000). All specimens in eastern North America mentioned by Henry & Wheeler (1979, 1988), Wheeler & Henry (1992), Schwartz & Kelton (1990) belong to P. montanus (Schwartz in litt.). Psallus montanus is considered a palaearctic species, probably introduced to eastern North America for at least 50 years. There is a wide overlap of the known distribution of both taxa in central Europe. In some localities, the taxa co-occur. In central Europe, however, P. montanus apparently is more common than P. betuleti. In the eastern Palaearctic Region, Psallus betuleti occurs to the far east of Siberia, whereas P. montanus only is known to the Kaukasus region. More material needs to be checked to more carefully elucidate the distribution of these closely related species.
