Diagnosis. Body yellow, greenish or stramineous. Head with or without dark spots. Forewing with appendix extending to third apical cell, with two anteapical cells. Male pygofer usually with plumose macrosetae. Connective with arms divergent. Subgenital plate normally with membranous digitate apical lobe. Aedeagal shaft not hinged at base.

Remarks. Zahniser & Dietrich (2013) provided a detailed description of the tribe. The genus Balclutha  was considered a member of a separate tribe Balcluthini  by Oman (1949) but Linnavuori (1959) transferred it to Macrostelini  . Macrostelini  contains 37 genera and 316 species of which Macrosteles  , Balclutha  and Cicadulina  are reported from Pakistan.
