(Indonesia: Bali Is.), A. distanti sp. nov. (India: Karnataka), A. prachuabensis sp. nov. (India, Thailand), Formallia gen. nov., F. ishiharai sp. nov.(Taiwan), F. longipenis sp. nov. (Taiwan), F. longistyla sp. nov. (Taiwan), F. rugosa sp. nov. (Taiwan), F. truncata sp. nov. (type sepcies) (Tai- wan), Hemagallia gen. nov. (type-species: Agallia plotina Distant), Ianagallia gen. nov. (type-species Austroagallia bifurcata Sawai Singh & Gill), Igerna aurora sp. nov. (Sunda Is, Timor Is.), I. darjeelingensis sp. nov. (India: Sikkim, West Bengal), I. delineata sp. nov. (India: Tamil Nadu), I. himalayensis sp. nov. (India: West Bengal), I. keyae sp. nov. (India: Sikkim), I. priyankae sp. nov. (India: Himachal Pradesh, Meghalaya. Nepal), I. quinlani sp. nov. (Nepal), I. sikkima sp. nov. (India: Sikkim), I. wilsoni sp. nov. (India: West Bengal), Japanagallia asymmetrica sp. nov. (China: Fukien), J. curvata sp. nov. (China: Fukien), J. javana sp. nov. (Indonesia: Java), J. longipenis sp. nov.

(Agallia), Igerna fasciata (Osborn) comb. nov. (Agalliopsis), Igerna quadrinotata (Melichar) comb. nov. (Agallia), Igerna nigrita (Melichar) comb. nov. (Oncopsis) and Igerna violacea (Distant) comb. nov. (Nehela). The following species are treated as new synonyms: Agallia pseudorobusta Kameswara Rao & Ramakrishnan syn. nov. of Anaceratagallia cuspidata Dlabola; Anaceratagallia delhiensis Kameswara Rao & Ramakrishnan syn. nov. of Anaceratagallia robusta Pruthi; Agallia campbelli Distant syn. nov. and Agallia janaka Distant syn. nov. of Hemagallia biplagiata (Melichar); Agallia rugosa Distant syn. nov. and Agallia bhuntra Sawai Singh syn. nov. of Hemagallia plotina (Distant), Austroagallia bisinuata Viraktamath & Viraktamath syn. nov. of Igerna quadrinotata (Melichar), and Dryodurgades bifurcatus Cai & Shen syn. nov. of Dryodurgades formosana (Matsumura). Most of these taxa are described and illustrated. Keys to genera and species are also included.
