Recent collecting, particularly in areas seldom visited by entomologists in the past, has yielded very interesting additions to the diaspidine fauna of this country. Some of the species found suggest faunistic links with the Palearctic and even Nearctic regions. Much of the material cannot be placed in existing genera, and although the undesirability of injudicious naming of genera, particularly monotypic genera, is fully realized, it is felt that the erection of the three new genera descriptionbed below is necessary.
