The broad objectives of the International Heteropterists’ Society (IHS) are to promote systematic, biogeographic, and biological studies of Heteroptera and to cultivate cooperative research among heteropterists throughout the world. The Society is organized and operated exclusively for scientific and educational purposes.

The Society holds a meeting every four years at locations around the world, where members give presentations on their work and discuss the directions of the Society. The Society’s website provides an online portal for distribution of information about bugs, including a world bibliography, taxon pages, and membership details.

New paper!

de Paiva Cunha E.V. et al.: "Hypoxys (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Pentatomidae: Edessinae): new species and updated identification keys for the species".

The genus Hypoxys Amyot & Serville, 1843 was recently revalidated and reviewed. Hypoxys is the second most numerous genus in Edessinae, with around 50 species described so far. Here, 12 new species of Hypoxys, distributed in three species groups, are described: H. quadridens group (H. afasciatus sp. nov. H. ambiguus sp. nov. H. variegatus sp. nov.), H. oxyacanthus group (H. bimaculatus sp. nov. H. stenospilus sp. nov.) and H. balteatus group (H. caienensis sp. nov. H. colombianus sp. nov. H. montanus sp. nov. H. oblongus sp. nov. H. splendidus sp. nov. H. tapirapensis sp. nov. H. tucumensis sp. nov.). Diagnoses for the species, distributional maps, and updated identification keys for the species groups of Hypoxys are provided. The female paratypes of H. breddini Mendonça, Nunes & Fernandes, 2021 are transferred to H. venustus Mendonça, Nunes & Fernandes, 2021. The geographical distribution of H. venustus is expanded.

Avendaño, J.M. et al.: "Review and phylogeny of Cyrtomenus Amyot & Serville (Hemiptera: Cydnidae: Cydninae) based on morphological characters"

Cyrtomenus includes seven species arranged in two subgenera and belongs to the most diverse subfamily of burrower bugs, Cydninae. The species present polyphagous habits, and at least two species are considered crop pests. We conduct a phylogenetic analysis based on morphological characters and two weighting schemes to test its monophyly and the validation of the included subgenera, providing for the first time a phylogenetic hypothesis for the genus. Based on the results, a taxonomic review is presented, including redescriptions of the species, identification key, and distribution maps. Monophyly of Cyrtomenus is supported under implied weighting methods (IW), in both analyses, a clade including species of Prolobodes Amyot & Serville is recognized. The species of these two genera share the posterior tibia strongly flattened, a unique feature among Neotropical Cydninae. The subgeneric classification within Cyrtomenus is not corroborated.
