The study of the generic characters of the closest genus Chilobia, Enhydria and Stalubra allows to separate them better : a general board of the morphological characters and colours is proposed and 3 species (Enhydria rufula, josianae et castilloi) are transfered to the genus Stalubra.

http://zoobank.org/81EE671D-8C89-4D08-B306-76B20DF9949C

Abstract. – A new species of nano-leaf insect, Nanophyllium australianum Cumming, Le Tirant, and Teemsma, n. sp. (Phasmida, Phylliidae), is described from a single male specimen from Queensland, Australia. This single Australian record was originally considered as a range expansion for Nanophyllium pygmaeum Redtenbacher, 1906 (Rentz, 1988). Reexamination of this specimen as well as the intraspecies variation within other Nanophyllium specimens revealed this Australian record as morphologically distinct and geographically isolated. With this species now distinguished from N. pygmaeum and additional specimens within the genus examined, a more comprehensive key to species is included.
