Abstract

The genera Sphodropoda Stål, Trachymantis Giglio-Tos and Zopheromantis Tindale are revised. Aspects of their biology are discussed and distributions given. One new species of Sphodropoda, S. lepida, is described. Sphodropoda moesta Giglio-Tos, S. mjobergi Sjöstedt and S. papua are new synonyms of S. tristis (Saussure). Sphodropoda dentifrons Stål is transferred to Trachymantis. S. loripes Tindale is transferred to Zopheromantis. Z. trimaculata Tindale is a new synonym of Z. loripes.
