2 Humeri more or less distinct. Fully winged. Lateral margins of pronotum completely beaded or not. Stylomere smooth, setose or spinose ( figs. 5–8 View FIGS ). Elytra with 1–4 scutellar pores......................................................... 3

– Humeri completely reduced. Hind wings completely reduced. Lateral margins of pronotum completely beaded. Stylomere smooth ( fig. 4 View FIGS ). Elytra with 7–8 scutellar pores.............................................. Megadrypta   gen. n.

3 Lateral margins of pronotum not beaded or with a subtle line, hardly distinct, emargination very weak or absent (figs. 9–10). Stylomere with 3–4 spines on concave margin and with 2–3 spines on convex margin.............................. 4
