- The subfamily Cylapinae (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Miridae) is first reviewed from Eastern continental region, the Korean Peninsula, with findings of four newly recorded species. The tribe Bothriomirini Kirkaldy is recognized for the first time based on the specimens of Bothriomiris gotohi Yasunaga, 2000. The genera Fulvius and Peritropis are also first reported with discoveries of F. ussuriensis Kerzhner, 1973, F. nozawai Yasunaga & Wolski, 2017, and P. advena Kerzhner, 1973. The record of genus Punctifulvius is confirmed on the basis of the species of Punctifulviuskerzhneri Schmitz, 1978. The variable character of F. nozawai between populations and ambiguous character of B. gotohi are discussed. The morphological information including diagnosis and brief biology of each species are presented. A key to the cylapine species in the continental region of Eastern Palaearctic Hemisphere is also provided.
