Volume 27, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



Diloponis inconspicuus Pope was descriptionbed as a new genus and species of ladybird beetle by Pope (1961), and the determination of its taxonomic relationships with allied genera necessitated a revision of the tribe Pharini. In addition to the type specimens in the British Museum (Nat. Hist.), London, male and female paratypes were deposited in the National Collection of Insects, Pretoria.
