Myrmecoroides Gross is revised and a new diagnosis is provided for the genus. The two previously recognized species, M. carinatus Gross and M. grossi Carvalho, are redescribed. Three new species are described: M. cassowary, M. monteithi, and M. rufescens. The male and female genitalia are documented and illustrated where specimens of each gender were available. Phylogenetic analysis of the species is given. The common name, Hatchet Head Plant Bug, is introduced for the genus, in recognition of the greatly bicompressed head.
