Filicicoris gen. nov., a mirine true bug from Tahiti, and six species, F. huahine sp. nov., F. meyeri sp. nov., F. raiatea sp. nov., F. rubramaculus sp. nov., F. tatarnici sp. nov. and F. viridis sp. nov., are described as new to science. Digital images, scanning electron micrographs, maps of distribution, and drawings of male and female genitalia are provided for all species, except for F. viridis, where the female is unknown. The new species represent the first fern record of the subfamily Mirinae.
