Abstract: Afromenotes hirsuta gen. & sp. nov. (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Dinidoridae: Eumenotini) is described from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and compared with its only close relative, the Oriental genus Eumenotes Westwood, 1844. Afromenotes hirsuta thus represents the first record of Eumenotini from the Afrotropical Region. The external efferent system of the metathoracic scent glands of E. obscura Westwood, 1846 is described in detail, and distribution and host plants of Eumenotes species are reviewed. A list of known host plants for larval Dinidoridae is compiled from literature. Eumenotes obscura is recorded for the first time from Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, and several territories within India (Uttarakhand), Indonesia (Bali, Mentawai Islands) and Malaysia (Kelantan, Sabah, Tioman Island); E. pacao Esaki, 1922 is recorded from Vietnam.
