The Mediterranean genera Acanthogeron Bezzi and Lissomerus Austen are synonyms of Dischistus Loew. Bombylodes Paramonov and Efflatounia Bezzi are re-defined; Karakumia Paramonov is a synonym of Efflatounia and Efflatounia berbera spec. nov. is descriptionbed from Algeria. The distribution of the genus is discussed and one group of species is shown to be probably associated with a genus of Rubiaceae.
