Phytocoris longipennis Flor, 1861 

( Figs. 1View FIGURE 1 D, 3E –F, 4A, 5, 6C, 7, 9, 11, 12)

Phytocoris longipennis Flor, 1861: 593  , 601 (sp. nov.); Schuh, 1995: 890 (cat.); Kerzhner & Josifov, 1999: 157 (cat.); Yasunaga, 2001: 255 (diag.); Zheng et al., 2004: 495 (diag.); Wheeler et al. 2006: 1000 (N.Am. record); Schuh, 2002– 2014: (cat.).

Diagnosis. Recognized by its moderate size; brown, somewhat mottled dorsum; longer and more slender appendages than other congeners; antennal segment I longer than mesal length of head and pronotal length; segment III longer than basal width of pronotum; ratio of hind tibia: pronotum over 3.5; male genitalia as in Figs. 7View FIGURE 7, 9View FIGURE 9, Female genitalia as in Fig. 12View FIGURE 12. For more diagnostic character, description and figures, see below papers ( Wagner & Weber, 1964, Kerzhner, 1988a, Zheng et al., 2004, Wheeler et al., 2006, Yasunaga & Schwartz, 2015).

Distribution. Europe, Korea, North America, Far-East Russia.

Host plants. Associated with various deciduous broadleaves; Acer  spp. ( Aceraceae  ), Alnus  spp., Betula  spp., Corylus  spp. ( Betulaceae  ), Fagus  spp., Quercus  spp. ( Fagaceae  ), Fraxinus  spp. ( Oleaceae  ), Crataegus  spp., Malus  spp., Prunus  spp., Sorbus  spp. ( Rosaceae  ), Platanus  spp. ( Platanaceae  ), Populus  spp., Salix  spp., ( Salicaceae  ), Tilia  spp. ( Tiliaceae  ) ( Wheeler et al., 2006, Yasunaga & Schwartz, 2015).

Remarks. This species, as a rule, can be recognized by the concolorously pale or brown-colored pronotum. On the other hand, in Korean populations, some specimens have a generally fuscous pronotum ( Figs. 3View FIGURE 3 E –F), and diverse color variation on the dorsum ( Figs. 3View FIGURE 3 E –F, 4A).

Material examined. South Korea: Gangwon –do: 4♀, Mt. Jumbong, Jindong –ri, Girin –myun, Inje –gun, from light trap, 15.vii.2015, M. S. Oh  ; 3♂, ditto, 11.vii.2016, M. S. Oh, S. H. Lee, J. Y.
