To the taxonomy of the subfamily Aradinae (Heteroptera, Aradidae)

Aradinae (Hemiptera, Heteroptera, Pentatomomorpha, Aradoidea, Aradidae – “flat bugs”) is mostly Holarctic (temperate and subtropics of Eurasia and North America) group. Here I have tried to summarize information about the taxonomy of the subfamily.

 

The most important catalogs are:

Some identification guides (continental or country level, most of them somewhat outdated):

In the following preliminary list of species of Aradinae of the World fauna I may have missed some tropical species. The status of some taxa remains debatable. The list is available as a table (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1QdLbUQZ9rm_jaDVs4YACV3_PD7gDrCujg5U8JEl2CUw/edit?usp=sharing). Unfortunately, only some Palaearctic species may be referred to “species groups” (according to Heiss & Péricart, 2007).

Great work! Now we need somebody to create the groups on iNaturalist ;-)!
Thanks!
