In a revised classification of the Tropiduchidae, which includes a number of species injurious to crops, the family is divided into 15 tribes, of which six (Cixiopsini, Eporini, Isporisini, Neommatissini, Remosini and Turneriolini) are proposed as new, two (Eutropistini and Tangiini) are given new status and seven are redefined. New subtribes (Clardeina, Neotangiina and Duriina) are erected in Eporini, Tangiini and Eutropistini, respectively, and Kazeruniina is given new status in the last. The genera Chiotasa and Habrotasa are transferred to Achilidae, Dolia, Hiracia, Karna, Parahiracia, Siebererella and Gastrinia to Issidae, and Kruegeria to Ricaniidae, and Dichoneura is brought into Tropiduchidae from Delphacidae. Biruga chariclo Fennah is transferred to Athestia to form a new combination, and Tambinia theivora sp. n. is described from material that included examples collected on tea.
