Revision of the genera Marmottania Puton and Phasmosomus Kiritshenko (Heteroptera: Lygaeidae, Rhyparochrominae) RAUNO E. LINNAVUORI The genera Marmottania Puton and Phasmosomus Kiritshenko are revised. The former is in- cluded in the tribe Ozophorini, the latter in the Phasmosomini. New combination: Marmottania priesneri Wagner = Phasmosomus priesneri (Wagner). New synonymies: Marmottania rungsi Vidal, 1951 = M. simonis Puton, 1887. Phasmosomus hoberlandti Kiritshenko, 1963 = P.pries- neri (Wagner, 1958). R. E. Linnavuori, SF-21220 Raisio 22, Somersoja, Finland. Introduction The Rhyparochromine genera Marmottania Puton and Phasmosomus Kiritshenko superficially resemble each other in the long narrow body, color- ing and long extremities. Wagner (1958), for exam- ple, mixed them and described a species of Phas- mosomus as Marmottania. The genera however, are not closely related and differ in the following basic characters: 1. Ocelli present in Marmottania, ves- tigial in Phasmosomus. 2. Inner laterotergites ab- sent (as in Fig. Ic) in Marmottania, present (Fig. I h) in Phasmosomus. 3. Scent gland scars broad (as in Fig. Ic) in Marmottania, not evident (Fig. lg) in Phasmosomus. 4. Cu furrow present in metathoracic wings (as in Fig. lb) in Marmottania, not evident (Fig. Ig) in Phasmosomus. 5. Suture be- tween sterna 4 and 5
