Phytocoris minakatai Yasunaga & Schwartz, 2015: 39  (sp. nov.); Yasunaga, 2016: 46 (diag., distr.).

A, P. goryeonus  . B, P. intricatus  . C, P. longipennis  . D, P. minakatai  . E, P. ohataensis  . F, P. pallidicollis  . G, P. shabliovskii  .

Diagnosis. Recognized by its moderate size; mottled dark-brown dorsum ( Figs. 4View FIGURE 4 B –C); labium short, slightly over metacoxa. In Korea, P. ohataensis  is externally very similar to this species, but the latter can be distinguished from the former by the antennal segment III shorter than basal width of pronotum, more elongated lobal sclerite ( Fig. 11View FIGURE 11), oblong, medially adjacent sclerotized rings of female genitalia ( Fig. 13View FIGURE 13). For more diagnostic character, figures and description, see Yasunaga & Schwartz (2015).

Distribution. Japan, Korea.

Host plant. Pinus densiflora Sieb. & Zucc  ( Pinaceae  ) ( Yasunaga & Schwartz, 2015).
