Santalalean‐feeding plant bugs: ten new species in the genus
Eight new species of Hypseloecus are described from Australia, providing the first records of Pilophorini and this formerly Indo‐Pacific genus from the continent; two additional new species are described from South Africa. All species are documented as using hemiparasitic Santalales as hosts, including species of Amyema, Dendrophthoe and Lysiana (Loranthaceae) in Australia and Viscum (Viscaceae) and Tapinanthus (Loranthaceae) in South Africa. These new species are integrated into a prior phylogenetic analysis of the Pilophorini on the basis of morphology and DNA sequence data.
