Abstract: The tribe Podopini is divided into three subtribes: Kayesiina subtrib. nov.,
Podopina, and Scotinopharina subtrib. nov., differing in the length and sha- pe
of jugae, presence or absence of a tooth on the anterior part of bucculae and
transverse carinae on pronotum, structure of pygophore, parandria, aedeagus, and
female genitalia. Scotinophara dentata Distant, 1902, is transferred to a new
genus, Stysiellus gen. nov., which differs from Scotinopharina in having large
pyramidal lateral parandria, characteristic of Podopina, and some other
characters. Stysiellus gen. nov. is distributed in India and Nepal (new record).
