 Comments
       
  Comment: The family-group name Tingidae is consistently attributed to Laporte, but the year is variously given as 1831 to 1833. At the superfamily rank there is a potential priority conflict between Tingoidea Laporte (1831-1833?) and Miroidea Hahn (1831-1833?), as the family group name Miridae is attributed to Hahn, and is variously dated to 1831 to 1833, as well. Until this issue is resolved, ITIS will follow the common practice of using Miroidea over Tingoidea, and will leave the various family-group names (ranked from tribe to superfamily, see Principle of Coordination) without authorship. See also ICZN Direction 6 (1954:665-680), which seems to indicate that the Laporte's name was officially rejected, and Tingidae was attributed to Costa, 1838, instead
