Poreuomenini  Brunner von Wattenwyl, 1878

This tribe contained three genera in 1891 and is characterized by asymmetric tibial ears and a well-developed spine on the fore coxae (Brunner von Wattenwyl, 1891). It is thus quite similar to the Holochlorini  mainly distributed in Asia, in which now Brunner von Wattenwyl’s Holochlorae and Psyrae are included ( Bey-Bienko, 1954). Future studies have to show if and how Poreuomenini  and Holochlorini  can be separated and where the African genera included in Holochlorini  at present have to be placed ( Liu 2011).
