Tuarega Uvarov, 1943  (type species: Tuarega insignis Uvarov  )

Uvarov (1943) erected this genus to separate the North African species Eremocharis insignis Lucas, 1851  from Asiatic ones, basing the description on the following characters: vertex narrow, frontal ridge broad, absence of pronotum keel, metazona flat and parabolic, tegmina very long, reaching the apex of hind tibiae.
