First hind tarsomere acuminate. Aedeagus fused to the connective. Female second valvulae asymmetrical.
Oriental region (Fig. 19).
This dikraneurine genus is remarkable because it has a feature unknown in other typhlocybinae but present in another leafhopper subfamily (Signoretiinae), i.e. the elongate pronotum. A full description of the genus was given by Viraktamath and Dietrich (2011).
