The tribe Podopini is divided into three subtribes: Kayesiina subtrib. nov., Podopina, and Scotinopharina subtrib. nov., differing in the length and shape of jugae, presence or absence of a tooth on the anterior part of bucculae and transverse carinae on pronotum, structure of pygophore, parandria, aedeagus, and female genitalia. Scotinophara dentata Distant, 1902, is transferred to a new genus, Stysiellus gen. nov., which differs from Scotinopharina in having large pyramidal lateral parandria, characteristic of Podopina, and some other characters. Stysiellus gen. nov. is distributed in India and Nepal (new record).
