Six species of Tropiduchidae have been earlier recorded from the Mascarenes, five of them having been assigned to the genus Clardea, the sixth being Conchyoptera unicolor Signoret. Laberia palliata Stal, which was descriptionbed, probably in error, from Mauritius (Stal 1866), and which has sometimes been considered a tropiduchid (Melichar 1923; Fennah 1958), is in fact a nogodinid (Fennah 1978).
