Abstract

Aloka depressa gen. et sp. nov. (Signoretiinae) from India (Karnataka: 36 Km West Jog Falls) representing the first record of the tribe Phlogisini from the Indian subcontinent is described and illustrated. It resembles Phlogis Linnavuori from Africa but differs in having a less arcuate pronotum that lacks lateral foveae, much broader face and depressed male genital capsule. The male of Phlogis mirabilis Linnavuori collected from Africa is also described and illustrated for the first time.
