Zangis Stål, 1968: 514. (junior homonym of Zangis Gistl, 1848, Crustacea)

Glaucias Kirkaldy, 1908: 124. (new name for Zangis Stål, 1868)

Type Species: Pentatoma crassa Westwood, 1837, by subsequent designation (Distant, 1902, but see note)

Note: Distant (1902) designated Cimex beryllus Fabricius, 1787, as type species, but this was not one of the original species in the genus. He did, however, treat C. beryllus further, and listed Pentatoma crassa Westwood, 1837, as a variety. Pentatoma crassa was an original species in Glaucias. According to article 69.2.2 in the Code of Zoological Nomenclature, this should then be considered a valid type designation.
