Phytocoris ohataensis Linnavuori, 1963 

( Figs. 4View FIGURE 4 D –E, 5, 6E, 8, 10, 11, 13)

Phytocoris ohataensis Linnavuori, 1963: 74  (sp. nov.); Schuh, 1995: 896 (cat.); Kerzhner & Josifov, 1999: 158 (cat.); Yasunaga, 2001: 256 (diag.); Schuh, 2002–2014: (cat.).

Phytocoris scotinus Kerzhner, 1977: 8  (sp. nov.); Schuh, 1995: 906 (cat.); Kerzhner & Josifov, 1999: 159 (cat.); Yasunaga, 2001: 256 (diag.); Schuh, 2002–2014: (cat.); Yasunaga & Schwartz, 2015: 43 (diag. syn.).

Diagnosis. Recognized by its moderate size; dorsum pattern highly diverse, pale brown to dark brown, or green; long, slender right paramere ( Fig. 10View FIGURE 10); male lobal sclerite leaflike, ovate ( Fig. 11View FIGURE 11). Similar to P. minakatai  , but easily distinguish by longer antennal segment III and labium ( Figs. 4View FIGURE 4 D –E). In Korea, this species can be confused with P. intricatus  , but can be distinguished by key (Couplet 6) below and the more ovate lobal sclerite. For more figures, diagnostic characters and description, see Kerzhner (1977, 1988a) and Yasunaga & Schwartz (2015).

Distribution. Japan, Korea, Far-East Russia.

Host plants. Adults were found from Abies sachalinensis F. Schmidt  , Larix leptolepis (Sieb. et Zucc.) Gordon  , Picea glehnii (F. Schmidt) Mast.  , P. abies  (L.) H. Karst. P. pungens Engelm.  ( Pinaceae  ), Salix  spp. ( Salicaceae  ), Rhus javanica  L. ( Anacardiaceae  ) ( Yasunaga & Schwartz, 2015); but immatures are yet to be found.
