For the representation of eigenstates on a Poincare section at the boundary of a billiard different variants have been proposed. We compare these Poincare Husimi functions, discuss their properties, and based on this select one particularly suited definition. For the mean behavior of these Poincare Husimi functions an asymptotic expression is derived, including a uniform approximation. We establish the relation between the Poincare Husimi functions and the Husimi function in phase space from which a direct physical interpretation follows. Using this, a quantum ergodicity theorem for the Poincare Husimi functions in the case of ergodic systems is shown.
