Abstract


The tribe, Eodelphacini Emeljanov 1995 (Hemiptera: Fulgoromorpha: Delphacidae), was revised to include 3 genera and 4 species in China. One new genus and 2 new species are reported: Parapunana gen. nov., Parapunana liangi sp. nov. (China: Guizhou) and Prolivatis hainanensis sp. nov. (China: Hainan). One new combination, Pa. sinica (Liang, 2002), comb. nov. (China: Sichuan), transferred from Punana Muir, is proposed. The generic characteristics of Prolivatis have been redefined. The main morphological characters, male genitalia of 2 new species above, have been described and illustrated. A key to Eodelphacini in China has been provided.
