ABSTRACT. The subfamilies Erotinae and Dictyopterinae are reviewed. Three new tribes, Lopherotini tr.n., Proterotaphini tr.n. and Macrolycinellini tr.n., and a new subtribe, Pseudaplatopterina, subtr.n., are established. A new genus, Platycides gen.n., and seven new species are described: Platycides holzschuhi, Taphomimus huaphanensis, Dictyoptera phoupanensis, D. panicola, D. laomontana, D. recticarinata (Laos) and D. triachroma (Vietnam), spp.n. Dictyoptera bicoloricornis (Pic, 1933), syn.n. is put in synonymy with D. quadricostata (Pic, 1927). Coloberos incisus (Pic, 1925), comb.n., C. pahanganus (Kleine, 1939), comb.n., C. malaccanus (Pic, 1922), comb.n. and C. klossi (Blaire, 1928), comb.n. are transferred to Coloberos Bourgeois, 1885 from Pyropterus Mulsant, 1838. The aedeagus of Dictyoptera laosensis (Pic, 1926) is illustrated. A checklist of Erotinae and Dictyopterinae is provided, as well as a note on their biogeography.
