The lace bug genus Lasiacantha Stål, 1873 (Hemiptera, Heteroptera, Tingidae, Tinginae, Tingini) is widely distributed in the Old World; however, no species has been recorded in Japan. To date, L. altimitrata (Takeya, 1933) has been reported in China and Taiwan. Here, I report Lasiacantha and L. altimitrata from Japan for the first time, based on materials collected from Ishigaki and Miyako islands in the Ryukyu Islands. In Japan, this lace bug is found in grasslands near beaches. Miyako Island is the easternmost locality for L. altimitrata.
