Baeoalitriozus Li 

Diagnosis: Body dark, glossy, covered in long setae. Vein R+M+Cu1 of forewing strictly trifurcating. Hindwing usually reduced, at most half as long as forewing; sometimes scale-like. Metacoxa extended anteriorly, forming distinct pointed process. Metatibia with several indistinct basal teeth and 1+2 or 1+3 apical spurs. Male proctiger with well-developed posterior lobes.

Biology and damage: In the Southern United States, Baeoalitriozus diospyri (Ashmead)  , the persimmon psyllid, causes leaves and shoots of its host to become stunted, twisted and curled ( Mead 2012). 

Host-plants: Diospyros  ( Ebenaceae  ) ( Yang et al. 2013).

Distribution: Oriental, Afrotropical and Pacific Regions as well as New World ( Yang et al. 2013).

Remarks: This is the first record of this genus in Colombia.
