Abstract

Two new microleafhopper genera in the Alebroides genus group, Nulliata Lu, Xu & Qin, gen. nov., based on the type species N. rubrostriata Lu, Xu & Qin, sp. nov., and Inflatopina Lu, Dietrich & Qin, gen. nov., based on the type species I. intonsa Lu, Dietrich & Qin, sp. nov., are described from southwest China. Five known species in the Alebroides sohii species group are transferred to Inflatopina as new combinations. Keys to genera of the Alebroides genus group and species of Inflatopina are given.
