The Heteroptera (Insecta, Hemiptera) described by Paul Dispons. Annotated inventory of the type specimens preserved in the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, Paris

An annotated list of the 174 taxa of Heteroptera described or proposed by Paul Dispons between 1950 and 1971 is given after a study of his collection preserved in the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, Paris. A total of 257 type specimens are recognized belonging to 116 taxa at specific level. Most of them are Reduviidae, and others are Coreidae (seven), Lygaeidae (one), Miridae (one), Corixidae (two) and Belostomatidae (one). Lectotypes are designated for 25 of them. The study of this material confirms the previously established synonymies and allows us to propose nine new ones: Rhinocoris hierapolitanus Dispons, 1964 n. syn. and R. ocreatus Dispons, 1964 n. syn. of R. iracundus (Poda, 1761) ; R. iracundus nigripes f. safavii Dispons & Villiers, 1967 n. syn. of R. iracundus nigripes Kolenati, 1857 ; Holotrichius apterus kafirnigani Dispons, 1964 n. syn., H. apterus kizilkumi Dispons, 1964 n. syn. and H. ilius Dispons, 1964 n. syn. of H. bergrothi Jakovlev, 1891 ; H. araxeus Dispons, 1964 n. syn. and H. eroanumensis Dispons, 1964 n. syn. of Holotrichius apterus Jakovlev, 1879 ; Oncocephalus babylo Dispons, 1970 n. syn. of O. brachymerus Reuter, 1882. A complete list of the publications by P. Dispons is given.
