Mycopsylla indica Mathur, 1975 

Distribution. India: Tamil Nadu ( Mathur 1975).

Host plant unknown. Mathur (1975) recorded the types (8 ♂, 9 ♀) from Santalum album  ( Santalaceae  ) which is an unlikely host as all known hosts of Homotomidae  are Moraceae  ( Hollis & Broomfield 1989; Burckhardt et al. 2017).

Comments. Probably conspecific with Mycopsylla gardenensis  according to Hollis & Broomfield (1989).
