Abstract: A new ground-dwelling cimicomorphan Heteroptera taxon, Mangalcoris miniatus new genus, new species, is described from beneath wet intertidal timber in Southeast Asian mangrove swamps and tentatively placed in the family Miridae, subfamily Cylapinae. Individuals of this species are uniformly micropterous, and the difficulties in assessing family placement in the context of this and other reductional character states exhibited by this taxon are discussed. Notes on the habits and habitats of this odd intertidal species are also provided. Figures are provided of the male and female dorsal and lateral habitus, leg and pretarsal structures, and male genitalia. © National University of Singapore.
