Description

This dataset comprises a list of holotypes and lectotypes of the plant bug family Miridae housed at the Zoological Institute in St. Petersburg, Russian Academy of Sciences. A total of 592 type specimens were georeferenced and digitized. Furthermore, high-quality images of specimen labels, dorsal and lateral habitus views, and in some cases male genitalia structures were produced for these type specimens.

The initial types specimens accumulated in the collection were described by Alexander Becker and Vasily E. Jakovlev [e.g., 1–6]. Subsequently the collection was greatly expanded primarily through the dedicated efforts of long-term curators of the Heteroptera collection, Alexander N. Kiritshenko and Izya M. Kerzhner [e.g., 7–13], with contributions of other authors. Kerzhner et al. [14] published a catalogue of primary types of Palearctic Miridae retained in the collection of the Zoological Institute, significantly facilitating the preparation of this dataset. Since then, holotypes of ca. 50 additional species have been incorporated into the collection [e.g., 15–19].

Most Miridae types were described from the Palearctic region and stored alongside other identified specimens as part of the general world collection of Heteroptera. This collection is housed in standard wooden drawers with glass lids within the Hemiptera Department of the Laboratory of Insect Systematics at the Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Digitizing of the Miridae type specimens collection of the Zoological Institute RAS was financially supported by the grant of Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation (N 075-15-2021-1069).
