Abstract: The Planetary Biodiversity Inventory (PBI) for Plant Bugs provides a resource about the global plant bug subfamilies Orthotylinae and Phylinae (Insecta: Heteroptera: Miridae) to systematists, insect ecologists, conservation biologists, the general public, and students via the Internet. The database was made possible with the generous support from the National Science Foundation in 2003-2011.
