Key to genera of Australian Phlyctaenodini  

1 Eye completely divided into separate upper and lower sections ( Fig. 3D View FIGURE 3 , F, H, J).................. Tessaromma Newman  

- Eye emarginate, forming 2 or 3 lobes...................................................................... 2

2 Eye forming 3 lobes................................................................................... 3

- Eye forming 2 lobes................................................................................... 4

3 Division of lower eye lobe with carina-like elevation bearing gland opening and dispenser; antennal scape as long as antenno- mere 3................................................................................ Bardistus Newman  

- Division of lower eye lobe with gland opening and short, apically setose dispenser; antennal scape longer than antennomere 3..................................................................................... Tricheops Newman  

4 Mesoventral process pointed apically and not joined to metaventrite.............................. Diotimana Hawkins  

- Meso- and metaventral processes broadly joined between mesocoxae............................................ 5

5 Meso- and metafemora smooth on posterior margins. Frontoclypeus in front of antennal insertions short and usually strongly sloping forward, distance between anterior margin of antennal foramen and base of mandibular articulation equals 1.0–2.0 times diameter of antennal foramen ( Figs 1C View FIGURE 1 , F, J); elytra with short setae and bristles............................... 6

- Meso- and metafemora with denticles on posterior margins. Frontoclypeus in front of antennal insertions long and gently slop- ing forward, the distance between anterior margin of antennal foramen and base of mandibular articulation at least 3 times diameter of antennal foramen; elytra with bristles only......................................... Escalonia   gen. nov.

6 Protibia with two apical spurs; pronotum with lateral projections distinct and sharp ( Figs 1 View FIGURE 1 A-J)..... Phlyctaenodes Newman  

- Protibia with single apical spur; pronotum without distinct lateral projections................... Ambeodontus Lacordaire
